On-demand guest release from MOF-5 sealed with nitrophenylacetic acid photocapping groups

Abstract

Recently, we demonstrated that triphenylacetic acid could be used to seal dye molecules within MOF-5, but guest release required the digestion of the framework by treatment with acid. We prepared the sterically bulky photocapping group [bis-(3-nitro-benzyl)-amino]-(3-nitro-phenyl)-acetic acid (PC1) that can prevent crystal violet dye diffusion from inside MOF-5 until removed by photolysis.
