  • 1. Investigation of Porphyrin-based MOFs as Porous Hosts for Generating Singlet Oxygen Abstract Porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) consisting of crystalline coordination polymers are of interest as host materials for molecular sorption. MOFs exhibit permanent porosity, high thermal stability, and feature pores with high surface areas, large pore volumes, and properties that can be modified through synthesis. We are currently developing porous MOFs that incorporate photosensitizers in the MOF backbone in an effort to develop highly sorbent materials that generate singlet oxygen in order to oxidatively decompose adsorbed organic guest molecules present in the MOF. Ultimately, these materials will be used for applications involving environmental remediation and treatment of contaminated water sources. Toward this goal, the work in this project focused in three areas: (1) preparation of a porous MOF containing a metalloporphyrin as the photosensitizer, (2) investigation of a method to detect formation of singlet oxygen and (3) characterization of the activity of the MOF toward generating singlet-oxygen. A porous MOF containing a porphyrin as the photosensitizer was prepared via hydrothermal synthesis by reacting meso tetra(4- carboxyphenyl)porphyrin (TCPP) with zinc nitrate and 4,4’-bipyridine (BPY) in DMF at elevated temperature. Photolytic generation of singlet oxygen by the MOF was investigated by monitoring oxidative conversion of a model contaminant, 1,3-diphenylisobenzofuran (DPBF), to the corresponding diketone using UV-VIS absorption spectroscopy.

The area of the peak at 405 nm directly correlates to the concentration of DPBF. A solution of 100 µM DPBF and 10 mg of MOF particles in DMF was excited for 80 minutes with a 60 W Xe lamp through a 480 nm cutoff filter to protect DBPF from UV degradation. Degradation of DPBF by singlet oxygen was determined at 10 minute intervals by monitoring the reduction in absorption by DPBF remaining in solution. •  A MOF containing Zn, BPY & TCPP photosensitizer was synthesized hydrothermally and shown to be porous and thermally stable to above 300 °C. •  Production of singlet oxygen by the MOF was demonstrated in DMF by monitoring degradation of DPBF spectroscopically. Zeolites offer a limited number of structures and compositions, and smaller pore sizes (4-10 Å pores) Structures, pore sizes and physical properties of metal-organic frameworks can be modified by changing the organic ligand (4 to 20 Å pores) Zeolites Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) MOFs Actively Absorb Organic Guests IRMOF-5 Surface area: 3774 m2/g Pore volume: 8.3 × 10-7 m3/g Channel dimensions: 12 Å × 12 Å 0 0.0005 0.001 0.0015 2 3 5 molessobed(mmol) C0(mM) Naphthalene Phenanthrene + 8.3 × 8.5 × 7.9 × We have shown previously that MOFs such as IRMOF-5 absorb a variety of organic guests from solution with high selectivity for larger guests that more closely match the pore dimensions.
