Abstract

Novel polymer grafted metal-organic framework (MOF) nanoparticles were synthesized. The formed core/shell nanoparticles exhibit outstanding water dispersity and pH sensitivity, and show their catalytic effect for the reduction reaction of 4-nitrophenol (NP) to 4-aminophenol (AP) when loaded with Pd(0) catalyst.
