Synthetic Design of Homochiral Metal-Organic Frameworks
by Nguyen, Edward T., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 86; 10601420
Abstract (Summary)

Crystalline porous materials (CPMs) have attracted much interest because of their tunable porosity, leading to catalysis, gas adsorption and separation, and ion exchange. Chirality, specifically when present in homochiral crystalline porous materials, allows for enantioselective applications, such as enantioselective catalysis or separation. Synthesis of these chiral materials has become increasingly important in recent decades, in part due to the need for enantiopure pharmaceuticals. The precise chirality control is the key to the synthesis. In this study, we explore different synthetic strategies surrounding the chiral inclusion of camphoric acid in the design of novel homochiral crystalline porous materials.
