Herein, a core-shell dual metal-organic framework (MOF) heterointerface is synthesized. The Prussian blue (PB) MOF acts as a core for the growth of a porphyrin-doped MOF which is named PB@MOF. Porphyrins can significantly enhance the transfer of photoinspired electrons from PB and suppress the recombination of electrons and holes, thus enhancing the photocatalytic properties and consequently promoting the yields of singlet oxygen rapidly under 660 nm illumination. PB@MOF can exhibit a better photothermal conversion efficiency up to 29.9% under 808 nm near-infrared irradiation (NIR). The PB@MOF heterointerface can possess excellent antibacterial efficacies of 99.31% and 98.68% opposed to Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli, separately, under the dual light illumination of 808 nm NIR and 660 nm red light for 10 min. Furthermore, the trace amount of Fe and Zr ions can trigger the immune system to favor wound healing, promising that PB@MOF achieves the rapid therapy of bacterial infected wounds and environmental disinfection.
