Metal Organic Frameworks as precursors for the manufacture of advanced catalytic materials

ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series
The development of synthetic protocols for the preparation of highly loaded metal nanoparticle supported catalysts has received a great deal of attention over the last few decades. Independently controlling metal loading, nanoparticle size, distribution and accessibility has proven challenging because of the clear interdependence between these crucial performance parameters. Among the different strategies suggested in literature, the use of metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs) as precursors for the synthesis of catalytic nanomaterials offers unrivalled design possibilities,1 as we will demonstrate in this presentation. Herein we will discuss the application of MOFs as catalyst precursors for the synthesis of highly loaded metal nanoparticle supported solids for applications in syngas and CO2 related chemistries. 2-6 In the last part, we will introduce the use of MOFs as templates for the synthesis of single site based catalysts with application in hydrogenation reactions.7
