Titanium based Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are one of the most difficult systems to investigate due to the very high chemical reactivity of titanium cations in solution. Developing Ti based MOFs that combine the very good photocatalytic or photoconductive properties of Ti oxoclusters or TiO2 is thus still a great challenge. We report here our recent progresses in this domain from new Ti phenolate based systems to the discovery of a unique Ti oxide nanorod based porous MOF with promising photoconductive properties. We will also describe preliminary photocatalytic or photoconductivity tests.
