Frontispiece: Visible Light Induced Organic Transformations Using Metal-Organic-Frameworks (MOFs)
Zhaohui Li, Hermenegildo García, Xiaoyu Deng
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), a class of micro-/mesoporous hybrid materials, are recently emerging as a new type of photoactive materials for organic syntheses due to their unique structural characteristics. In this Review, recent applications of MOFs as photocatalysts for light induced organic transformations, including (1) oxidation of alcohols, amines, alkene, alkanes and sulfides; (2) hydroxylation of aromatic compounds like benzene; (3) activation of the C−H bonds to construct new C−C or C−X bonds; (4) atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) are discussed by Z. Li, H. García and X. Deng on page 11189 ff.
