In this thesis, selected synthetic aspects of functional Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are considered. More specifically, the work is focused on MOFs doped with functional molecules in the role of structural linkers. In the first part, preparation of such MOF/molecular catalyst hybrid materials of two topologies UiO (UiO = Universitet i Oslo) and NU-1000 (NU = Northwestern University) – is investigated and three different synthetic pathways to these materials are studied. In the second part, a novel MOF depth profiling technique – Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry – is introduced and then used to elucidate depth distribution of molecules post-synthetically introduced into a MOF. In the last part, efficient interfacing of MOFs with electrodes is considered and a methodology for growing surface-mounted layer-pillar-type M2L2P MOFs (SURMOFs, M = metal, L = layer linker, P = pillar linker) with high degree of orientation and thickness control on bare Si substrates is developed.
