Synthesis of Atomically Precise Single-Crystalline Ru2-Based Coordination Polymers

submitted on 24.06.2020, 17:01 and posted on 26.06.2020, 08:09 by Wen-Yang Gao, Gerard Van Trieste, David Powers
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.
