Metalorganic frameworks (MOFs) are a new type of compounds which have been intensely investigated during the last few years. They have been synthesized using a wide variety of metals and ligands constructing a vast number of 1, 2 and 3 dimensional structures, some of which possess zeolite-type physics and chemistry.Our approach is to incorporate platinum metal sites into the structures making them bimetallic and potentially catalytically active. Therefore a number of N-N-type ligands (diimines, phenanthrolines and bipyridines) and their dichloro-platinum complexes have been prepared and used as linkers in MOF synthesis.To make the chemistry and ideas of MOFs understandable to chemists on all levels, a comprehensive theoretical part considering homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, MOFs in general, heterocyclic chemistry and characterization techniques has been included.
The thesis is written in Danish.
