Salen(Co(III)) imprisoned within pores of metal-organic framework by postsynthetic modification and its asymmetric catalysis for CO2 fixation under room temperature

Abstract

A new preparation strategy of chiral metal-orangic frameworks (CMOFs) has been demonstrated. By adsorption and then post-synthetically modified (PSM) procedures, chiral Salen(Co(III)) can be imprisoned within the cages of MOF and kept as its free form. It is the first example of CMOFs to be successfully applied in heterougeous asymmetric catalysis for coupling CO2 with epoxides to optically active cyclic carbonates under the room temperature.
