The influence of the MOF shell thickness on the catalytic performance of composites made of inorganic (hollow) nanoparticles encapsulated into MOFs

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein we report the encapsulation of hollow Pt or Pd nanoparticles into ZIF-8, making a series of composites in which the ZIF-8 shell thickness has been systematically varied. By using these composites as catalysts for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol and Eosin Y, we show that the MOF shell thickness plays a key role in the catalytic performance of this class of composites.
