Using Linker Design In Metal-Organic Framework Synthesis

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are proven to be ideal platforms for heterogeneous catalysis and have been used in a wide variety of chemical reactions, showing promising catalytic performance. Due to the multicomponent nature of MOFs, active sites can be functionalized on metal nodes or organic struts, or even encapsulated within the pores. Among these, linker functionalization
