Abstract: Light-harvesting MOFs: A new porous porphyrinic metal–organic framework (MOF; see picture) was obtained by hydrothermal synthesis. The chemical and thermal stability of the material allows a postsynthetic insertion of zinc in the center of the porphyrin. The visible-light photocatalytic activity of this porphyrin-based material is shown for the sacrificial hydrogen evolution from water.
