Prof. Dirk Volkmer Institute of Physics, Chair of Solid State & Materials Chemistry, Augsburg, Germany
Since 2009, metal-organic frameworks (MFU-4 family, CFA-1 ) have been developed in our group, that comprise unique "Kuratowski-type" coordination units. The structural and functional relationship between these frameworks and the versatile class of scorpionate complexes will be presented with special attention drawn to function (i.e. quantum sieving,  band-gap engineering , activation of small molecules ). A rational approach towards catalytically active MOFs is proposed, which rests on the tridentate facial coordination of redox-active metal centers in frameworks giving rise to open and flexible coordination sites, suitable for the development of functionally diverse heterogeneous catalysts and sensor materials.
