Synthesis of catalytically active porous organic polymers from metalloporphyrin building blocks

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of a porous organic polymer (POP) containing free-base porphyrin subunits has been accomplished by the condensation of a bis(phthalic acid)porphyrin with tetra(4-aminophenyl)methane. Metallation by post-synthesis modification affords microporous materials incorporating either Fe or Mn(porphyrins) that have been shown to be active catalysts for both olefin epoxidation and alkane hydroxylation.
