Among the other metal organic framework (MOF) families, phosphonate MOFs provide the richest metal binding for MOF synthesis, and they are known to exhibit exceptional thermal and chemical stabilities between zeolites and MOFs. Due to the synthetic difficulties, the total number of microporous phosphonate-MOFs are still very limited in the literature. In this work, we challenge the design and synthesis strategies to form electrically conductive, proton conductive, and highly stable microporous MOFs, COFs and HOFs, which are constructed using arylphosphonic acids.
Doç. Dr. Gündoğ Yücesan finished his bachelor degree at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul in 2002. He finished his PhD work at Syracuse University in New York on the synthesis of hybrid organic/inorganic frameworks in 2006. In addition to his synthetic chemistry work, he had a postdoctoral experience in biochemistry at University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Currently, he is finishing his habilitation at TU-Berlin in material science. His research interests include design and synthesis of new MOF families and their applications in supercapacitors, carbon capture. Another research direction in Dr. Yücesan’s group is the development of novel fluorescent probes to monitor bone remodelling, and pathological calcifications in the eye and brain.
