Visible-Light-Mediated Photocatalytic Selective N-Methylation of Amines using CO2 under mild reaction condition via NH2-MIL-125 (Ti) MOF catalyst



We herein describe a facile synthesis method of novel NH2-MIL-125 (Ti) metal organic framework as a photocatalyst, and the photochemical system was firstly developed for the direct N-methylation of amines under very mild reaction conditions of one bar CO2 and NaBH4. According to the optimization of reaction conditions, the selective synthesis of methylamines is achieved in good to excellent conversion and selectivity using visible light mediated photocatalytic system.
