Metal–Organic‐Framework‐Derived Carbons: Applications as Solid‐Base Catalyst and Support for Pd Nanoparticles in Tandem Catalysis
Goh, Tian Wei
The facile pyrolysis of a bipyridyl metal‐organic framework, MOF‐253, produces N‐doped porous carbons (Cz‐MOF‐253), which exhibit excellent catalytic activity in the Knoevenagel condensation reaction and outperform other nitrogen‐containing MOF‐derived carbons. More importantly, by virtue of their high Lewis basicity and porous nature, Cz‐MOF‐253‐supported Pd nanoparticles (Pd/Cz‐MOF‐253‐800) show excellent performance in a one‐pot sequential Knoevenagel condensation‐hydrogenation reaction.
