The aim is to investigate the influence of a mesoporous environment on catalyst properties aiming for rational development of improved molecular heterogeneous catalysts. These properties include the electronic structure and the mobility of the catalyst inside the pore. To this end we have selected a model complex equipped with a number of orthogonal spectroscopic handles. We will immobilize this probe molecule into porous polymer films with precisely known anchoring points as well as into structurally well-defined covalent organic frameworks. We will develop novel spectroscopic tools to determine the dynamic and static behavior of the probe molecule.
