Abstract

We have detected the first example of open porous metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) that functions as an activity site for the reduction of water into hydrogen molecules in the presence of Ru(bpy)32+, MV2+, and EDTA–2Na under visible light irradiation. This activity is highly efficient: the turnover number based on MOFs and the apparent quantum yield are 8.16 and 4.82%, respectively. Furthermore, this material enables the adsorption of various gases into its pores; its hydrogen uptake capacity is 1.2 wt% at 77.4 K.
