A Base-Resistant Metalloporphyrin Metal-Organic Framework for C-H Bond Halogenation. Academic Article uri icon


  • A base-resistant porphyrin metal-organic framework (MOF), namely PCN-602 has been constructed with 12-connected [Ni8(OH)4(H2O)2Pz12] (Pz = pyrazolate) cluster and a newly designed pyrazolate-based porphyrin ligand, 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-(pyrazolate-4-yl)phenyl)porphyrin under the guidance of the reticular synthesis strategy. Besides its robustness in hydroxide solution, PCN-602 also shows excellent stability in aqueous solutions of F-, CO32-, and PO43- ions. Interestingly, the Mn3+-porphyrinic PCN-602, as a recyclable MOF catalyst, presents high catalytic activity for the C-H bond halogenation reaction in a basic system, significantly outperforming its homogeneous counterpart. For the first time, a porphyrinic MOF was thus used as an efficient catalyst in a basic solution with coordinating anions, to the best of our knowledge.
