Abstract

A porous ionic crystal is synthesized with a cationic Al(iii)-salphen complex (Al(iii)-salphen) and a α-Keggin-type polyoxometalate (POM). The compound possesses stable three dimensional porous structure and shows high activity as a heterogeneous catalyst in pinacol rearrangement, which is a typical acid reaction. Notably, Al(iii)-salphen, POM, and a physical mixture of the two components are much less active, suggesting a synergetic effect of Al(iii)-salphen and POM in a porous framework.
