Metal–organic frameworks (ZIF-67) as efficient cocatalysts for photocatalytic reduction of CO2: the role of the morphology effect

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), ZIF-67, with different morphologies were synthesized via a solvent-induced method at room temperature. The photocatalytic performances towards the reduction of CO2 were evaluated by using ZIF-67 materials as cocatalysts cooperating with a ruthenium-based complex as the photosensitizer. It has been demonstrated that the two-dimensional ZIF-67 with a 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.
