The Chemistry of Titanium-based Metal–Organic Frameworks


Due to the highly potential applications of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), the research, recently focusing on design, syntheses, and surface modification of the new generation of crystalline-based MOF materials, has being received much attention. Among numerous kinds of this material, MOFs based on Ti–oxo cluster are potential candidates for the practical applications such as photocatalysis, CO2 reduction, pollutant degradation because of its high optical responsitivity and photoredox properties. The capable of Ti-MOFs in wide range application is being inspired to replace the uses of TiO2, which recently may be classified as a potential carcinogen. However, the amount of tianium–organic frameworks structure is very limited compared to uncountable structures of other MOFs. In order to emphasize the important of discovering the new Ti-MOF materials and related features, this work aims to describe the chemistry of titanium-based MOF including the synthetic method, crystal structure evaluation, topological analysis as well as the further key novel applications, desired to be extended in many industrial fields.
