Chapter 8: Catalysis in Confined Space: Relationship Between Metal–Organic Frameworks and Discrete Coordination Cages
Published:16 Aug 2021
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) and supramolecular coordination cages (SCCs) have generated increasing interest for catalysis applications. In this chapter, we discuss design strategies for functional MOFs and SCCs. How can catalysts be introduced? What kind of catalysis can be performed with these materials? What are the main differences and similarities between MOFs and discrete SCCs, and what can these fields learn from each other?
