Abstract

Incorporation of Diboraanthracene into Metal-Organic Frameworks

Author: Sarah Yauchzee, University of La Verne

Mentor: Jordan Taylor, Department of Chemistry, UC-Riverside

The storage of renewable energy as chemical fuel can be achieved through the conversion of combustion products (i.e. CO2) into liquid fuels (i.e. MeOH). Traditionally, research has focused on transition metals (Pd, Pt, Rh), rather than p-block elements, due to their intrinsic redox activity and reactivity. However, main group compounds are emerging as viable replacements to transition metals. In an effort to harness the reactivity of main-group compounds with the kinetic stability of precious metals, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have emerged as a promising strategy to integrate redox-active main group compounds into a rigid, chemically robust three-dimensional structure. Owing to its ability to undergo reversible two-electron reduction and bind small molecules, 9,10-diboraanthracene is a promising molecule in the rapidly emerging field of metallomimetics. Herein we present the synthetic efforts towards the incorporation of 9,10-diboraanthracene into a MOF for eventual applications in energy storage, small-molecule activation and liquid fuel production.
