Abstract

Here, we synthesize a novel polyoxometalate-based crystalline tubular inorganic–organic compound, Mn[Zn(im)]2{[Na(H2O)]2[Mn(H2O)2][Zn(im)2][P4Mo6O31H6]2}·8H2O (IFMC-100) (im and IFMC correspond to imidazole and Institute of Functional Material Chemistry, respectively). Au-anchored tubular microreactor, Au@IFMC-100, has been prepared by simple immersion of IFMC-100 in an ethanol solution of HAuCl4 without any extra reducing agents, photochemical and electrochemical auxiliaries. Furthermore, IFMC-100 and Au@IFMC-100 have been employed as catalysts for the reduction of K3Fe(CN)6 and 4-nitrophenol with NaBH4 in aqueous solution, respectively. The results indicate the as-prepared Au@IFMC-100 microtubes exhibit enhanced catalytic performance in redox catalysis.
