An amine-functionalized titanium metal-organic framework photocatalyst with visible-light-induced activity for CO2 reduction

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2012 Apr 2;51(14):3364-7. doi: 10.1002/anie.201108357. Epub 2012 Feb 22.


Let your light shine: the photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to the formate anion under visible light irradiation is for the first time realized over a photoactive Ti-containing metal-organic framework, NH(2)-MIL-125(Ti), which is fabricated by a facile substitution of ligands in the UV-responsive MIL-125(Ti) material.
