Metal-Organic Framework-Derived Heterojunctions as Nanocatalysts for Photocatalytic Hydrogen Production

Abstract

Based on the various well-defined components and structures, high specific surface area and adjustable pore sizes, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), have not only been widely used for gas sorption and separation, catalytic and sensing materials but also applied as precursors for nanomaterials with important applications such as in energy storage and conversion. In this review, we summarized the recent progresses of MOF-derived heterojunctions as nanocatalysts for photocatalytic hydrogen production from water splitting, which are organized in two main categories: i) using pore chemistry of MOFs to accommodate small species for MOF-derived heterojunctions; ii) using surface chemistry of MOFs to combine other functional species for MOF-derived heterojunctions. The fundamentals of the rational design and synthesis of MOF-derived heterojunctions for photocatalytic hydrogen production are discussed in detail.
