Recently,PhDstudent Mr. Benjamin Edem Meteku has published a review article titled“Magnetic metal-organic framework (MMOF) composites for environmental monitoring and remediation”in Coordination Chemistry Reviews (DOI information: 10.1016/j.ccr.2020.213261). This work was financially supported by the National Key Technologies R&D Program of China, Key projects of intergovernmental international innovation cooperation and the Shandong Key Research and Development Project of China.
Based onprevious research work, thispaperhighlighted the general methods for synthesizing MMOF composites and the classification of MMOF composites based on their composition with appropriate examples. In-depth analysis of physicochemical properties of MMOF composites that are harnessed for the detection and remediation of environmental contaminants and are discussed. Furthermore, the practical applications of these auspicious composites to detect some environmental pollutants and remediate their effects on the environment are extensively explored.
Benjamin Edem Meteku is supervised by Professor Yan Zifeng. The catalytic materials team led by Professor Yan Zifeng is committed to the research of micro-nano structural functional materials. Due to its excellent physical and chemical properties, the materials have shown broad application prospects in many fields such as energy, catalysis and environment.
