Abstract

Through a combination of protecting groups, postsynthesis deprotection, and postsynthesis metallation, a homogeneously inaccessible, single-site vanadyl(monocatecholate) moiety can be incorporated into the dipyridyl struts of a Zn-based, pillared paddlewheel MOF. The resulting MOF, which has large pores, exhibits catalytic activity in the benzylic oxidation of tetralin in the presence of tert-butylhydroperoxide.
