Lanthanide-Anderson Polyoxometalates Frameworks: Efficient Sulfide Photooxidation

Inorg Chem. 2022 Dec 12;61(49):20080-20086. doi: 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.2c03504. Epub 2022 Nov 23.


Three polyoxometalate-based metal-organic frameworks were synthesized by the thermal reaction of pyridyl-Anderson polyoxometalate linker and lanthanide ions. With the help of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ photosensitizer, these frameworks exhibited excellent photocatalytic sulfide oxidation performance with sulfoxide selectivity. The reactive oxygen species as well as the photooxidation mechanism were also explored.
