Metal-organic framework (MOF) materials are microporous, crystalline solids that have found application in the areas of separation, sequestration, detection, and catalysis, among many others.1 Possessing pores of small-molecule sized dimensions, and composed of organic ligands that are highly tailorable,2 MOF-based catalysts are particularly attractive targets for use in selective transformations.3 This presentation will detail recent progress in assembling multifunctionalizable MOF materials, with the eventual goal of constructing enzyme-inspired MOF catalysts. continue reading>>
