Postsynthetic modification of coordination networks

In the last past five years, PSM has grown into an important tool for the manipulation of coordination network materials, and for the preparation of frameworks containing functionalised pores.

Porosity in metal–organic frameworks following thermolytic postsynthetic deprotection: gas sorption, dye uptake and covalent derivatisation

The porosity of MOFs before and after the removal of thermocleavable protecting groups has been probed by a range of experiments.

Conversion of primary amines into secondary amines on a metal–organic framework using a tandem post-synthetic modification

The amine-functionalised MOF [Zn4O(bdc-NH2)3] (IRMOF-3, bdc-NH2 = 2-amino-1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) has been post-synthetically modified in a tandem condensation-reduction process into secondary amine-containing MOFs. The degree of modification is enhanced by introduction of methanol, which helps to remove boron-containing side-products from the pores.

A catalytically active vanadyl(catecholate)-decorated metal organic framework via post-synthesis modifications

A catalytically active vanadyl(catecholate)-functionalized MOF was obtained via a sequential pair of post-synthesis modification steps: amine grafting followed by metallation.

Chloromethylation as a functionalisation pathway for metal–organic frameworks

A mild and safe chloromethylation of metal–organic frameworks is presented. After this post-synthetic functionalization, chlorine can be substituted by a wide range of moieties to obtain various multifunctional materials. The method can in principle be extended to coordination polymers with exposed aromatic rings.

Conversion of azide to primary amine via Staudinger reaction in metal–organic frameworks

Azide groups in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) were readily converted into primary amine via Staudinger reduction, which enabled further modification of MOFs with organic dyes bearing activated esters.
