Abstract

Given the need for an efficient reaction platform, a multifunctional material has been developed through the integration of iodine into a Cd2+ based MOF as a new catalytic system for organic transformation. Furthermore, the Cd-MOF itself has been successfully used as a potential material for photocatalytic dye degradation. The iodine incorporated MOF showed tremendous efficiency in organic catalysis for the synthesis of a library of benzimidazole derivatives with yield >80%. In addition, the same iodine loaded MOF (I2@Cd-MOF) exhibits good applicability and reusability for the synthesis of thienyldipyrromethane. Apart from this, the photocatalytic activity of the Cd-MOF was also evaluated under visible light irradiation which revealed excellent photocatalytic activity (82%) for MB degradation without the use of any enhancers. Altogether, this catalytic platform established its efficacy as a multifunctional catalyst in the organic synthesis of biologically active motifs and photocatalytic dye degradation.
