Title: Topological Transformation of a Metal–Organic Framework Triggered by Ligand Exchange

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have shown to be unsuspectedly dynamic. Here we describe the topological interconversion of a new framework in the bio-MOF-100 family (dia-c) into the known isomer (lcs) by doubling the pore volume, which occurs during post-synthesis modifications. During this transformation, re-assembling of the MOF building blocks into a completely different framework occurs, involving breaking/forming of metal-ligand bonds. MOF crystallinity and local structure are retained, as determined by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and pair distribution function (PDF) analyses, respectively. We have exploited the inherent dynamism of bio-MOF-100 by coupling chemical decorations of the framework using solvent-assisted ligand exchange (SALE) to the topological change. Following this method and starting from the pristine dense dia-c phase, open lcs-bio-MOF-100 was prepared and functionalized in-situ with an iridium complex (IrL). Alternatively, the dia-c MOF could be modified with wide-ranging amounts of IrL up to ca. 50 mol%, as determined by solution 1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, by tuning the concentration of the solutions used and with no evidence for isomer interconversion. The single-site nature of the iridium complexes within the MOFs was assessed by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and PDF analyses. As a result, ligand exchanges occurred quantitatively at room temperature, withmore » no need of excess of the iridium metallolinker.« less
