Interwrapping Distinct Metal-Organic Frameworks in Dual-MOFs for the Creation of Unique Composite Catalysts

Scheme 1

Schematic illustration of the synthesis procedures of dual-MOF HKUST-1/ZIF-8 and its derivative Cu@ZIF-8 composite for semihydrogenation of phenylacetylene into styrene. Controlled pyrolysis of dual-MOF HKUST-1/ZIF-8, consisting of lattice-mismatched MOFs HKUST-1 and ZIF-8 with distinct thermal stability, results in a composite material Cu@ZIF-8, consisting of in situ-generated Cu NPs inside the hierarchical pores of ZIF-8, which could prompt quantitative transformation of alkynes into alkenes without overhydrogenation.
