Abstract

Constructing well-organized metal–organic framework (MOF) membranes with a uniform and continuous nanoarchitecture is an effective strategy for the functionalization of MOF-based heterogeneous catalysts. In this work, by employing surfactant PVA (poly(vinyl alcohol)) as a soft-template, a moderate synthetic approach was adopted to obtain a Cu-MOF (1, [Cu(BBDC)(azobpy)(H2O)]n, H2BBDC = 4′-benzoyl-(1,1′-biphenyl)-3,5-dicarboxylic acid; azobpy = 4,4′-azopyridine) for building highly ordered Cu-MOF membranes (1a) with good control of the morphology and thickness on the surface of macroporous Cu foam, which could facilitate the growth of homogeneous and high-quality Cu-MOF membranes. Furthermore, the catalytic performance of Cu-MOF membranes 1a was superior to that of large sized 1 for tandem three-component C–H hydroxyalkynylation reactions, because the Cu-MOF membranes could afford a functionalized and tunable platform with the benefit of readily accessible active sites to promote tandem reactions by minimizing the diffusion distance but did little for their regioselectivity.
