A Bifunctional MOF catalyst containing Metal-Phosphine and Lewis Acidic Active Sites (dataset)



Abstract: Post-synthetic modification of the hafnium metal-organic framework MOF-808(Hf) to include triarylphosphine ligands is reported. Sulfonated phenylphosphines are incorporated without oxidation to give a ‘MOF-ligand’ that can complex late transition metals such as Ir and Rh to give a bifunctional catalyst containing both metal-phosphine complexes and the Lewis acidic framework
hafnium metal sites. The metallated phosphine-bearing MOFs act as fully heterogeneous bifunctional catalysts for tandem reductive amination and hydroaminomethylation reactions.
