Abstract

A series of mixed-linker bipyridyl metal–organic framework (MOF)-supported palladium(II) catalysts were used to elucidate the electronic and steric effects of linker substitution on the activity of these catalysts in the context of Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions. m-6,6′-Me2bpy-MOF-PdCl2 exhibited 110- and 496-fold enhancements in activity compared to nonfunctionalized m-bpy-MOF-PdCl2 and m-4,4′-Me2bpy-MOF-PdCl2, respectively. This result clearly demonstrates that the stereoelectronic properties of metal-binding linker units are critical to the activity of single-site organometallic catalysts in MOFs and highlights the importance of linker engineering in the design and development of efficient MOF catalysts.
