Proton Conduction in 2D Aza-Fused Covalent Organic Frameworks

Published on 2019-01-11T18:21:19Z (GMT) by
This paper describes the first demonstration of a general concept for achieving facile proton conduction within a class of layered two-dimensional aza-fused π-conjugated covalent organic frameworks (COFs). The built-in phenanthroline moieties promote efficient adsorption of water and acidification by H<sub>3</sub>PO<sub>4</sub> to produce excellent proton conductivities of 10<sup>–5</sup> and 10<sup>–3</sup> S/cm for the pristine and acidified analogues, respectively. These molecular design concepts are poised for development of highly stable proton-conducting materials.
