Synthesis of Atomically Precise Single-Crystalline Ru2-Based Coordination Polymers
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Methods to incorporate kinetically inert metal nodes and highly basic ligands into single-crystalline metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are scarce, which prevents synthesis and systematic variation of many potential heterogeneous catalyst materials. Here we demonstrate that metallopolymerization of kinetically inert Ru2 metallomonomers via labile Ag–N bonds provides access to a family of atomically precise single-crystalline Ru2-based coordination polymers with varied network topology and primary coordination sphere.
