Recent developments in robust microporous porphyrin solids

Dennis W. Smithenry, Kenneth S. Suslick

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


A review of the recent literature is presented which assesses the development of robust microporous porphyrin framework solids and their potential to perform selective sorption or heterogeneous shape- or size-selective catalysis. The review focuses only on those porphyrin solids whose porosity is robust, i.e. whose framework remains after the removal of solvates, as determined by thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), or gas adsorption studies. Eleven such robust porphyrin framework solids are presented.
