Engineered Superparamagnetic Core–Shell Metal–Organic Frame-Work (Fe3O4@Ni–Co-BTC NPs) with Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity for Selective Aerobic Oxidation of Alcohols Under Solar Light Irradiation

Abstract

This paper reported an environmentally benign strategy for the synthesis of a magnetic metal–organic framework (Fe3O4@Ni–Co-BTCNPs) via a multi-step procedure. The catalytic performance of Fe3O4@Ni–Co-BTCNPs was evaluated in the selective aerobic oxidation of alcohol substrates (including primary and secondary aliphatic and benzylic alcohols) in water and under solar light irradiation.
