Abstract

By coupling of Fe2O3@SiO2 particles with metal organic Framework (MOF) the magnetic MOF structure was fabricated. Precipitation and hydrothermal methods were applied for synthesis of core and MOF. Silver nanoparticles were deposited on nickel based metal organic framework surface and magnetic Fe2O3@SiO2@MOF@Ag was obtained. Because of strong coupling between silver nanoparticles and metal organic framework, the catalyst demonstrated high catalytic activity and selectivity in aerobic oxidation of alkenes under mild conditions. The nanostructure, exhibited high catalytic activity. Alkenes oxides (epoxy alkanes) were the main products with more than 89.9 % selectivity. Composite system of silver nanoparticles supported on Fe2O3@SiO2@Metal Organic Framework has potential to be an active catalysts for aerobic oxidation of alkenes under mild conditions.
