Hybrids of Metal–Organic Frameworks as Organized Supramolecular Nano-reactors

The concept of using hybrids of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with encapsulated structures, such as calixarenes, crown ethers, phthalocyanines and porphyrins, as nano-reactors or nano-containers for specific catalytic reactions is considered from the point of view of noncovalent interactions and molecular confinement in the porous architecture of MOFs of different structural types. Materials of this kind can be called “Russian matryoshka-type metal organic frameworks.” Controlling such interactions provides a key to enhancement of the efficiency of the catalysts and performance of adsorbents. The design of “green” and robust MOFs is of prime importance.
