cis -Decalin oxidation as a stereochemical probe of in-MOF versus on-MOF catalysis Academic Article uri icon


  • Development of catalyst-controlled C-H hydroxylation could provide direct access to valuable synthetic targets, such as primary metabolites. Here, we report a new family of porous materials, comprised of 2-dimensional metalloporphyrin layers and flexible aliphatic linkers, and demonstrate C-H hydroxylation activity. We demonstrate that the stereochemistry of cis-decalin oxidation provides a useful tool for differentiating catalysis in from catalysis on porous materials, which is critical to leveraging the potential of porous materials for catalyst-controlled oxidation chemistry.
