SOLID STATE ELECTROCHEMICAL TECHNIQUES
SOLID STATE SPECTROELECTROCHEMISTRY
In this work, we develop innovative in situ solid state UV-Vis-NIR, EPR Fluorescence and Raman spectroelectrochemical (SEC) techniques for probing the electronic and optical properties of electroactive MOFs and POPs. These techniques are unique in the context of existing research in the area and are significant in now enabling researchers to rapidly screen the spectroscopic properties of redox-active solids which are otherwise not amenable to analysis due to their air or moisture sensitivity. With interest in the electronic and conducting properties of porous materials now exploding worldwide, these simple, yet powerful methods are of good utility for the inorganic and materials chemistry communities. See our recent review on the area of spectroelectrochemistry for nanomaterials including MOFs and our general review on the potential of electroactive MOFs.
