  • The formation of imine-linked dynamic covalent frameworks (DCFs) has been systematically studied to determine how different factors such as reaction solvent and composition, reaction kinetics and thermodynamics, and structure of the building units influence the yield, degree of condensation, and homogeneity of the resulting products. Using molecular tetraimine analogs, we first investigated the kinetics and thermodynamics of imine condensation reactions under a variety of conditions, as well as the structures of the basic tetraimine units by X-ray crystallography. These model systems allowed us to identify conditions that favored both high reversibility and fast reaction kinetics for the imine condensation, leadingmore » in the end to the development of effective synthetic routes toward imine-linked DCFs with high degrees of cross-linking and homogeneity.« less
  • A crystalline material with a two-dimensional structure, termed metal–organic framework-901 (MOF-901), was prepared using a strategy that combines the chemistry of MOFs and covalent–organic frameworks (COFs). This strategy involves in situ generation of an amine-functionalized titanium oxo cluster, Ti6O6(OCH3)6(AB)6 (AB = 4-aminobenzoate), which was linked with benzene-1,4-dialdehyde using imine condensation reactions, typical of COFs. The crystal structure of MOF-901 is composed of hexagonal porous layers that are likely stacked in staggered conformation (hxl topology). This MOF represents the first example of combining metal cluster chemistry with dynamic organic covalent bond formation to give a new crystalline, extended framework of titaniummore » metal, which is rarely used in MOFs. The incorporation of Ti(IV) units made MOF-901 useful in the photocatalyzed polymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA). The resulting polyMMA product was obtained with a high-number-average molar mass (26 850 g mol–1) and low polydispersity index (1.6), which in many respects are better than those achieved by the commercially available photocatalyst (P-25 TiO2). Additionally, the catalyst can be isolated, reused, and recycled with no loss in performance.« less
  • Two-dimensional covalent organic film with macrocyclic network under simple solvothermal conditions was recently synthesized experimentally [Colson, J. W.; et al. Science 2011, 332, 228], which offers immense potentials for optoelectronic applications as in the case of graphene. Here we systematically investigate the electronic and optical properties of such novel covalent organic frameworks (COF-5, TP-COF and NiPc PBBA-COF) as free-standing sheets using density-functional theory. The results shed considerable light on the nature of spatial carrier confinement with band offset. COF-5 exhibits a type-II heterojunction alignment with the significant valence and conduction band offsets, suggesting an effective spatial carrier separation of electronsmore » and holes. In TP-COF, the valence offset is close to zero related to the dispersed distribution of photoexcited holes over the entire structure, while the conduction-band offset is still remarkable, indicating the effective confinement of photoexcited electrons. NiPc PBBACOF presents a type-I heterojunction alignment where the band-edged wave functions are localized in the same region, achieving the effective spatial carrier congregation. The calculated absorption peaks of the optical absorption of TP-COF and NiPc-PBBA COF frameworks are in agreement with experimental measurements, thus providing theoretical insights into experimental observed transmission spectra of these frameworks.« less
