Stabilization of Radical Active Species in a MOF Nanospace to Exploit Unique Reaction Pathways

Abstract

We synthesized a metal–organic framework (MOF) using a ligand bearing haloalkoxy chains as a radical precursor. The radicals generated in the MOF upon photoirradiation were stable even at 250 K or under an O2 atmosphere, despite radicals generated from the ligand decomposing at 200 K; thus, the regular arrangement of radicals effectively stabilized them. Moreover, a unique photoproduct was confirmed only in the MOF, indicating that the confinement effect in the nanospace enabled a specific reaction that did not occur in the bulk state. We propose a new platform for exploring chemical reactions and materials based on reactive species.
