Topology-guided design of an anionic bor -network for photocatalytic [Ru(bpy) 3 ] 2+ encapsulation Academic Article uri icon


  • An anionic metal-organic framework, PCN-99, has been synthesized through a topology-guided strategy; its underlying bor-net is realized by the use of a tetrahedral [In(COO)4](-) node and a judiciously designed trigonal planar linker. In light of its anionic nature, the inherent cuboctahedral cage and 1D channel make PCN-99 an excellent matrix to encapsulate the photocatalytic [Ru(bpy)3](2+).
