As an alternative to PAFs, porous organic cages (POCs) can provide several benefits; mainly, their crystallinity and their compatibility with density modification strategies. An octahedral aldehyde and diamine-based imine cage, commonly referred to as CC3, has received a fair share of interest, becoming well known in POC based research into gas and small molecule storage and separations. While it excels at this application, its primary drawback is poor surface area when compared to other porous materials (MOFs, COFs, PAFs, etc.). Coupled with the moderately expensive starting materials required for synthesis, namely 1,3,5-triformylbenzene, there is much room for improvement in both synthetic process and molecular structure. The work outlined here describes a strategy to modify the packing arrangement and density of CC3 to explore optimization of density, to ultimately improve volumetric methane uptake in POCs. This was achieved through the synthesis of film phase POCs, and the effects of phase change on gas adsorption characteristics and density were investigated.

Summarizing all the latest trends and recent topics in one handy volume, this book covers everything needed for a solid understanding of photochromic materials. Following a general introduction to organic photochromic materials, the authors move on to discuss not only the underlying theory but also the properties of such materials. After a selection of applications, they look at the latest achievements in traditional solution-phase applications, including photochromic-based molecular logic operations and memory, optically modulated supramolecular system and sensors, as well as light-tunable chemical reactions. The book then describes the hot-spot areas of photo-switchable surfaces and nanomaterials, photochromic-based luminescence/electronic devices and bulk materials together with light-regulated biological and bio-chemical systems. The authors conclude with a focus on current industrial applications and the future outlook for these materials. Written with both senior researchers and entrants to the field in mind.

"This Dissertation has explored the advantages and limitations of mechanochemistry (i.e., reactions induced or sustained by mechanical agitation), in making selected organic and metal-organic materials. Specifically, while mechanochemistry has been established as a versatile tool and effective means to screen for new solid forms of active pharmaceutical ingredients, this thesis highlights previously not noted differences in the physicochemical properties between nominally identical materials made mechanochemically, compared to those obtained by more conventional solution routes. In the context of metal-organic framework (MOF) materials, this thesis demonstrates the development of new solid-state synthetic strategies enabled by liquid-assisted grinding, such as the preparation of microporous mixed-metal framework materials with controllable stoichiometric compositions. The mechanochemically-enabled target-oriented synthesis of such materials uses a deliberately pre-synthesized coordination polymer or monomeric complex as a precursor for the synthesis of frameworks. Moreover, it is also shown how mechanochemistry allows the replacement of toxic transition metals in MOF synthesis with more benign alkaline earth metals such as calcium or magnesium. Inspired by the need to design materials that are safer and biocompatible, this Thesis also addressed mechanochemistry as a route to frameworks based on naturally available g-cyclodextrins. Implementing mechanochemistry as a tool for the synthesis of such "edible" MOFs gave us access to novel materials based on benign divalent metal cations, such as Mg2+ and Ca2+. Apart from mechanochemistry, this thesis also addresses the fundamental understanding and development of advanced MOF materials. Specifically, it investigates how changes to the linker structure can affect the performance and stability of a popular family of zirconium-based frameworks, revealing that changes in conformational freedom of the linker can critically affect chemical stability. Understanding the design parameters for zirconium MOFs enabled the design of a novel material NU-400, with potential use as a photocatalyst for the effective, rapid oxidative degradation of the chemical warfare agents (CWAs) related to mustard gas"--
