Title: Direct Observation of Node-to-Node Communication in Zeolitic Imidazolate Frameworks

Abstract

Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) with open-shell transition metal nodes represent a promising class of highly ordered light harvesting antennas for photoenergy applications. However, their charge transport properties within the framework, the key criterion to achieve efficient photoenergy conversion, are not yet explored. Herein, we report the first direct evidence of a charge transport pathway through node-to-node communication in both ground state and excited state ZIFs using the combination of paramagnetic susceptibility measurements and time-resolved optical and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. These findings provide unprecedented new insights into the photoactivity and charge transport nature of ZIF frameworks, paving the way for their novel application as light harvesting arrays in diverse photoenergy conversion devices.
