Synthesis of porphyrin-based two-dimensional metal-organic framework nanodisk with small size and less layers

Abstract

A novel porphyrin-based two-dimensional metal-organic framework (MOF) nanodisk with small size and less layers was prepared by coordination chelation between meso-tetra(4-carboxyphenyl)porphine ligand and Zn(II) paddlewheel metal nodes. With 4, 4’-biphenyldicarboxylic acid (BPDC) as nucleation modulator, the anisotropic growth of MOF was impeded by the increased steric hindrance, which led to obtain small Zn-TCPP(BP) MOF crystals. The as-prepared MOF nanodisk exhibited good electrocatalytic activity and selectivity towards nitrite due to the independent distribution of the porphyrin molecules in the framework and sandwich structure of the prepared Zn-TCPP(BP) nanodisk, which increased accessible active sites.
