Heterometallic titanium-organic frameworks as dual-metal catalysts


Javier, Natalia and Neyvis work has been published in Chem. Their work shows how the combination of Ti(IV) with different metals leads to heterometallic Titanium-Organic Frameworks with catalytic activity towards the degradation of nerve agent simulants. The synergetic cooperation of Ti(IV) and Fe(III) sites enables the degradation of Sarin simulants in water without additional co-catalysts. By using an integrative experimental/computational approach, we answer one of the key open questions in the area of mixed-metal MOFs: how can the metals in the inorganic node influence each other for tuning the performance of the material?
