Abstract

We propose a dynamic covalent chemistry (DCC)-induced linker exchange strategy for the structural transformation between covalent organic frameworks (COFs) and cages for the first time. Studies have shown that the COF-to-cage and cage-to-COF transformations were realized by using borate bonds and imine bonds, respectively, as linkages. Self-sorting experiments suggested that borate cages and imine COFs are thermodynamic minimum compounds. This research builds a bridge between discrete and polymeric organic scaffolds and broadens the knowledge of chemistry and materials for porous materials science. Read More.
