Metal–organic frameworks as hosts for nanoparticles
The fabrication of metal nanoparticles (NP) in porous host matrices, especially metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) has become of great interest in recent years, due to the broad field of applications. In this article we summarize the progress in the field of NP@MOF materials and illustrate the different preparation methods as well as suitable characterisation techniques. Furthermore, practical applications in the fields of hydrogen storage and heterogeneous catalysis are briefly discussed.
