469252 Aerosol Processing of MOF-Based Nanocomposites for Carbon Dioxide Photoreduction
Here we report a facile development of novel metal-organic framework (MOF)-based nanocomposites with hierarchical structures and multi-functionalities via a single-step aerosol process. Effects of precursor concentration, component ratio, solvent type, and synthesis temperature were investigated in detail. The as-synthesized nanocomposites were systematically characterized by SEM, TEM, XRD, UV-vis, FTIR and BET. The crystal formation mechanisms of MOFs and MOF-based nanocomposites in aerosol routes will be discussed. In-situ analyses by using gas chromatography (GC) and diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS) will be employed to further understand the CO2 photoreduction pathways.
