Two birds with one stone: Metal nanoparticle (MNP)/metalorganic framework (MOF) composites exert superior performance in photocatalysis than their individual counterparts. This review introduced the synthesis strategies of MNP@MOF composites and highlighted their recent progress in photocatalytic hydrogenation, carbon dioxide reduction, organic transformations and degradation of pollutants.

The nanoarray electrode exhibits fastest bubble growth kinetics with highest time coefficient 0.54 and the largest growth coefficient (23.3) compared with smooth electrode and nanoporous electrode. The direct injection of generated gas molecules from the bottom of bubbles at the three phase boundaries is believed the key to tailor the bubble wetting states and thus determine the bubble evolution kinetics.
