Advanced 2D materials by metal-organic framework engineering

PHD CHEMISTRY, STARTING FALL 2019, BORDEAUX, FRANCE

Two-dimensional (2D) materials, i.e. materials that exhibit covalent chemical bonding in only one spatial plane, are presently at the forefront of fundamental and applied research. Whilst most scientific efforts have been devoted to the well-known graphene, or inorganic chalcogenides, these materials leave hardly any possibility for tailoring their electronic, magnetic or optical properties for specific applications. The use of Coordination Chemistry to design 2D materials is a very promising synthetic approach offering almost endless possibilities for the tuning of the physical properties. The M3 group has recently demonstrated that the Cr(pyrazine)2Cl2, a 2D coordination “polymer” (Nat. Chem. 2018, 10, 1056) displays a ferrimagnetic order, while a remarkably high electrical conductivity is observed at room temperature due to the electron delocalization within the layers. As a continuation of the work done in this system, this project will be devoted to the design and synthesis of new 2D and 3D MOFs that feature high TC magnetic order and/or high conductivity, and potentially other physical properties (porosity…).
