Sequential Pore Wall Modification in a Covalent Organic Framework
for Application in Lactic Acid Adsorption

 CM_COFLacticAcidCover_Highres

In this report, we describe the synthesis and postsynthetic modification of the stable β -ketoenamine TpBD(NH2)2 covalent organic framework (COF), having primary amine groups integrated into the pore walls. For this purpose we initially synthesized the nitro version of this COF, TpBD(NO2)2 . Afterward, TpBD(NO2)2 was reduced to afford the desired framework having primary amine functionality. We demonstrate the accessibility of the primary amine groups and the robustness of the framework by a second modification step, the aminolysis of acetic anhydride, to obtain the corresponding amide form TpBD(NHCOCH3)2. Taking advantage of the high stability of these frameworks under acidic conditions, we study the liquid-phase adsorption of lactic acid, revealing the strong impact of a pore wall modification on the adsorption performance.

Workshop : „Biomedical Potentials of Inorganic Nanomaterials“

On the issue of „Biomedical Potentials of Inorganic Nanomaterials“, the LMU and Fudan University organized a German-Chinese Young Researcher Workshop in Shanghai. Dr. Stefan Wuttke and his colleague Dr. Rongquin Huang from the Department of Pharmacy, Fudan University – invited various scientists from the fields of pharmacy, chemistry, medicine and biophysics. The goal was an academic knowledge exchange between  researchers and especially young researchers from China and Germany.
