Abstract

Two new metal-organic framework (MOF) materials based on boron-rich cluster struts (p-carborane) are reported herein. Cu(I) catalyzed coupling chemistry was used to synthesize carboxylate-based ligands, which are substantially longer than the previously studied dicarboxylated p-carborane, leading to structures with greater porosity. Solvothermal syntheses involving these ligands and Zn salts were used to prepare two new Zn(II)-based MOFs with 2D and 3D open framework structures. Upon thermal activation, these MOFs retain the chemical identity of their frameworks, leading to highly porous materials.
