A visible-light-harvesting covalent organic framework bearing single nickel sites as a highly efficient sulfur-carbon cross-coupling dual catalyst

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

Covalent-Organic-Frameworks (COFs) have recently emerged as light-harvesting devices, as well as elegant heterogeneous catalysts. The combination of these two properties into a dual catalyst has not been explored yet. Here, we report a new photosensitive triazine-based COF, decorated with single Ni-sites to form a dual catalyst. This crystalline and highly porous catalyst shows excellent catalytic performance in the visible-light-driven catalytic sulfur-carbon cross-coupling reaction. The ability to incorporate single transition metal sites in a photosensitive COF scaffold which acts as a two-component synergistic catalyst in organic transformation is demonstrated for the first time.
