Metal-organic framework (ZIF-67) as efficient cocatalyst for photocatalytic reduction of CO2: the role of morphology effect

Abstract

The metal-organic framework (MOF), ZIF-67 with different morphologies was synthesized via a solvent-induced method at room temperature. The photocatalytic performances towards the reduction of CO2 were evaluated by using ZIF-67 as cocatalyst cooperating with ruthenium-based complex as photosensitizer. It has been demonstrated that the two-dimensional ZIF-67 with leaf-like morphology exhibited the best photocatalytic activity and stability due to the highest CO2 adsorption capability and efficient electron transfer from the excited [Ru(bpy)3]2+ to ZIF-67.
