Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) Phenylethynylbenzene Ligand

A formyl functional ligand linker for COFs in application of carbon dioxide reduction and photocatalytic H2O2 production


Specifications | MSDS | Literature and Reviews


C3-type electron-rich monomer 4,4',4''-(Benzene-1,3,5-triyltris(ethyne-2,1-diyl))tribenzaldehyde (BTETBA), CAS number 2289758-98-9, is consisted of three 4-formylphenylethynyl functional groups sitting on the meta positions of a benzene ring.

Metal-free covalent organic framework, BTETBA-COF was obtained by incorporating ethynyl groups into the conjugated skeleton. The bridging with the ethynyl groups afforded a significant improvement in π-conjugation and photogenerated charge separation and transfer, promoting CO2 photoreduction in a solid-gas mode with only water vapor and CO2. The CO production rate with BTETBA-COF as the photocatalyst reached as high as 382.0 µmol g−1 h−1, ranking as one of the best among all additive-free CO2 photoreduction catalysts. Another BTETBA-TRz-COF, with spatially separated triazine and acetylene units, was engaged for photocatalytic H2O2 production. The spatial separation of triazine and acetylene cores leads to efficient charge separation and suppressed charge recombination, and carbon-carbon double bond linkage facilitates electrons transport over the skeletons.
