Green synthesis of coordination polymers using supercritical carbon dioxide

by Núria Portolés Gil, Supercritical Fluids and Functional Matirials Group, ICMAB-CSIC

Date: Monday, 18 November 2019
Time: 11:00 am
Venue: ICMAB - Sala d'Actes Carles Miravitlles

Abstract: 

Coordination polymers (CPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are considered potential candidates for numerous applications. Generally, these materials are synthetized using toxic organic solvents and high temperatures. The main aim of this work is to synthetize CPs using a green technology based on supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) solvent.

To date, the use of scCO2 in the field has been mainly limited to the post-synthetic activation steps. The use of scCO2 can go further, including the synthesis of these materials. Hence, the main objective of this work is to demonstrate this possibility, stablishing a synthetic protocol. The viability of the easy, fast and eco-friendly synthesis of new CPs and MOFs using scCO2 has been demonstrated.
