Abstract

Metal-phenolic networks (MPNs) are a versatile class of organic-inorganic hybrid systems that are generating interest for applications in catalysis, bioimaging, and drug delivery. These self-assembled MPNs possess metal-coordinated structures and may potentially serve as redox-responsive platforms for triggered disassembly or drug release. Therefore, a comprehensive study of the reduction and oxidation behavior of MPNs for evaluating their redox responsiveness, specific conditions required for their disassembly, and the kinetics of metal ion release, is necessary. Using a representative MPN gallic acid-iron (GA/FeIII) system, we conducted electrochemical studies to provide fundamental insigh..
