Synthesis of o-carborane-functionalized metal–organic frameworks through ligand exchanges for aggregation-induced emission in the solid state†
The carborane (CB)-functionalized ligand was installed in a variety of MOFs through postsynthetic ligand exchange processes. This methodology is a general method for preparing o-CB-functionalized MOFs with known frameworks. Furthermore, the photoluminescence (PL) spectra revealed intriguing aggregation-induced emission (AIE) features following the systematic incorporation of o-CB functionalities into framework-type materials.
