Metal Organic Frameworks: From Material Chemistry to Catalytic Applications

This chapter describes the different approaches that have been developed to synthesize metal organic frameworks (MOFs) with catalytic centres. In general, MOFs are materials composed of an organic and inorganic part, giving them great potential for catalysis. However, many of the stable MOF structures do not have active centres, and these have to be induced. The hybrid nature of these materials makes them unique for the design and synthesis of catalytic materials for desired applications. In this chapter, we describe the methods that can be used to design MOF with catalytic centres.
