A mixed-ligand strategy regulates thorium-based MOFs

Author affiliations


Two novel thorium-based organic frameworks (Th-IHEP-5 and Th-IHEP-6) were assembled from a hexanuclear thorium cluster, porphyrin derivative ligand and linear carboxylic acid ligands via a mixed-ligand strategy. As a stable heterogeneous catalyst, Th-IHEP-5 exhibited high photocatalytic activity for the oxidation of 2-chloroethyl ethyl sulfide (CEES) and the fixation of CO2. The good catalytic effect is attributed to the large conjugated system of porphyrin and the photosensitizer enhancing effects of bipyridine.
