Synthesis, Catalytic Application and uses of Functional Pillar Metal-Organic Frameworks

Ali Morsali

Among continuing investigations in solid state chemistry, MOFs are the class of promising materials which attracted tremendous amount of attention in the past two decades. MOFs are regarded as a subclass of coordination polymers (CP) which are constructed by self-assembly of metal ions or metal clusters linked together by organic ligands containing multiple binding sites oriented with specific angularity generating structures with permanent porosity, high specific surface area and tunable topology that can be used in different fields such as gas adsorption[1], separation [2], catalysis [3], sensing [4] and drug delivery [5]. Modifying pillar moieties as a third building blocks of pillar-layered MOFs, together with metal nodes and oxygen donor linkers can enhance controlling structure assembly and led to specific properties into obtained structures. The structure of pillar can be easily modified which cause better designing of desired structural topology and pore environment. Although the past decade has witnessed remarkable advances in this vibrant research area, pillar-layered MOF have never been reviewed as an independent research area until now. In this presentation some new pillar MOFs will be reported and discussed from catalytic applications views.
