Nanomaterial-Based Metal Organic Frameworks for Single Atom Catalysis covers nanoparticles and their properties, including tunable pore size, efficient reacting capability, large surface area, and morphology, which make them effective catalytic agents. In addition, the book cover catalytic systems, in which nanomaterial-based metal organic frameworks can be applied efficiently as single atom catalysis to enable enhanced functionalities and activities of the reactions in various applications. This book is an important reference source that will be of use to materials scientists, engineers, chemists and chemical engineers who want to learn more about nanomaterials are being used for catalytic applications. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are hybrid organic–inorganic, porous, crystalline nanomaterials, and have aroused great attention in the field of catalysis because of their crystalized nano- (lt;2 nm) or meso- (2–50 nm) porous structure, extremely high surface area, and significant chemical diversity. This nanomaterial-based metal organic framework, as a single atom catalysis, enhances the catalytic ability of dispersed single atoms.

Key Features
