This project sought to employ heme-containing metal-organic framework MOF materials to carry out the oxidative degradation of small molecules that serve as models of chemical warfare agents. Both gas- and solution phase experiments were be pursued, using oxidants such as molecular O-atom transfer agents and gaseous dioxygen. These initial studies included characterization of the first porphyrin ironIV oxo species within a MOF and the first example of a ironI porphyrin within a MOF.
