Research topic: Synthesis of sulfur-containing ligands and their incorporation into metal-organic frameworks

Most MOFs are electrical insulators due to poor charge transport. Replacing oxygen by a less electronegative atom like sulfur can potentially improve the orbital overlap and give rise to higher charge mobility. During my master’s thesis a metal-sulfur bonds containing MOF will be developed. Therefor, suitable linker molecules based on the structure of thioacids will be synthesized and used for subsequent MOF formation. The obtained materials will be fully characterized and tested regarding their electrical conductivity.
