Application of a novel 2D cadmium(ii)-MOF in the formation of a photo-switch with a substantial on–off ratio

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel thiocyanate bridged 2D MOF, [CdL(μ-1,3-SCN)2]n, [HL = 2-(2-(ethylamino)ethyliminomethyl)-6-ethoxyphenol] has been synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography. The band gap of the synthesized material in the solid state has been determined by experimental measurements and compared with the theoretical value obtained from DFT calculations. For the first time, the single crystal X-ray crystallography of a MOF has been reported along with its applicability in photosensitive devices.
