Project description

In this project water stable MOFs will be synthesized. In a second step the MOFs will be applied as host matrixes for the anchoring of gold and titania nanoparticles which will be synthesized in situ in the MOF framework. The resulting NP@MOF materials will be evaluated as catatalysts in the epoxidation of different olefins and as a photocatalyst.
