Metal–organic frameworks and their derivatives with graphene composites: preparation and applications in electrocatalysis and photocatalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a special class of porous materials and have been widely explored for applications in supercapacitors, catalysts, and adsorbents, because of their large specific surface areas and tunable structure and composition. However, traditional MOFs suffer from poor conductivity and low stability, which limit their efficiency in catalysis and other applications that require good electrical conduction. To overcome this limitation, a composite made of electrically conducting graphene and MOFs is conceptually a viable solution. This review summarizes the latest preparation methods for MOF/graphene materials with a focus on applications in electrocatalysis and photocatalysis. We aim to assist existing researchers to obtain a fast and holistic overview of MOF and their derivatives with graphene composites in catalysis, and also the new comers to quickly catch up with the latest development in this field.
