Metal organic frameworks mimicking natural enzymes: a structural and functional analogy

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this review, we have portrayed the structure, synthesis and applications of a variety of biomimetic MOFs from an unprecedented angle. Synthetic MOF analogues of five distinct enzymes: phosphotriesterase, hydrogenase, cytochrome P450, chymotrypsin and carbonic anhydrase, have been discussed with their skeletal comparison to actual enzymatic active sites as reference, and an explanation of catalytic pathways from the mechanistic cycle of the corresponding enzymes is depicted. We demonstrated critically each of the five discrete situations by assimilating available benchmark researches in an attempt to provide a concise literature source on the ingenious design strategies and versatile biomimetic applications of this domain of materials.
