Advanced Catalysts Based on Metal-organic Frameworks

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The significant benefits of MOFs in the field of catalysis can be found in their tunable porosity, uniformly-distributed active sites, and excellent porosity offering accessible active sites through their open channels facilitating the mass transport and diffusion, and finally, their robust structure ensuring recyclability. Thus, MOFs can efficiently offer the positive features of both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts, at high reaction efficiency and recyclability.

In the book “Advanced Catalysts Based on Metal-organic Frameworks”, the authors introduced the advanced catalysts based on MOFs. In Chapter 1, the strategies, synthesis, and applications of MOFs was reported.  Chapter 2 reported the post-synthetic modification of MOFs for catalytic applications. Chapter 3 introduced MOFs and their composites as catalysts for organic reactions. In Chapter 4, MOFs and their derived structures for biomass upgrading was reviewed. In Chapter 5-8, recent process of MOFs for CO2 conversion and photocatalytic water splitting were highlighted. From Chapter 9 to 13, the electrocatalytic applications of MOFs such as water splitting, oxygen reduction reactions, CO2 reduction were introduced.

 The book “Advanced Catalysts Based on Metal-organic Frameworks” symmetrically introduced the advanced applications of MOFs for various catalysis. The readers can learn most of the basic concepts and new progress of MOF-based catalysts for energy conversion and storage. The targeted audience for the book is scientists and post-graduates work on MOFs and catalysis.
