    Abstract

    © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2016. Herein we report the encapsulation of hollow Pt or Pd nanoparticles into ZIF-8, making a series of composites in which the ZIF-8 shell thickness has been systematically varied. By using these composites as catalysts for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol and Eosin Y, we show that the MOF shell thickness plays a key role in the catalytic performance of this class of composites.
