Thermally-promoted Post-synthetic Reactions in Metal-organic Frameworks
The ability to functionalise metal-organic frameworks after their formation is a decided advantage for tuning the properties and thereby enhancing the performance of these materials. This process, known as post-synthetic modification (PSM), has become very important to the field over the past 10 or so years. Our aim in this area has been to establish thermal reagentless methods of PSM and demonstrate the benefits of this approach. In this talk, results from Dr Richardson’s group work1-4 will be presented which have centered on the use of porous functionalized IRMOF-9 analogues (see Figure below), followed by discussion on the benefits as well as the group’s future direction in this area.
