A vanadyl(monocatecholate)-decorated metal-organic framework was synthesized using two sequential post-synthesis modifications. This material is catalytically active for the oxidation of organo-sulfide. In contrast to the homogeneous control catalyst, it can be tuned to be selective for the sulfoxide product using tert-butyl hydroperoxide as oxidant.
