Design, Synthesis and Applications of V-shaped Polycarboxylate meta–Carborane-Based Metal-Organic Frameworks
Supervisor: José Giner, LMI group, ICMAB-CSIC
Abstract: In this thesis, we present a study on the design and synthesis of V-shaped polycarboxylate meta–carborane-based linkers and the exploration of their resulting metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with Cu or Zr clusters. These carborane-based MOFs show some properties such as extraordinary hydrolytic stability, as a result of the high hydrophobicity of the carborane moieties. Based on these properties, the first reported three-dimensional polycarboxylate meta–carborane-based MOFs exhibit good gas, liquid separation and capture of toxic phosphorous compound.
