Porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) consisting of crystalline coordination polymers are of interest as host materials for molecular sorption and separation. We are currently exploring the utility of MOFs as stationary phases for chromatographic separation of organic. Toward this goal, the research on this project has focused in four areas: (1) preparation and characterization of a porous MOF solid, (2) development of a procedure to prepare thin films of MOF particles on glass plates as the solid support for thin layer chromatography (TLC), (3) assessment of solvent systems to identify a mobile phase suitable for separating compounds on MOF TLC plates, and (4) investigation of the chromatographic behavior of the MOF stationary phase toward separating a small library of aromatic dyes.
