Selective chemochromic and chemically-induced photochromic response of a metal–organic framework

Author affiliations

Abstract

The Zn(II) MOF with a tripyridinium-based hexacarboxylate shows direct color change on exposure to small primary amines and UV-assisted color response on exposure to small alcohols. The reversible, group-specific and size-selective chemochromic/chemophotochromic behaviours are ascribed to spontaneous/photoinduced guest-to-host electron transfer within the unique confined space furnished with electron-deficient sites.
