Abstract

Enzymes are natural catalysts which are highly selective and efficient. Given that enzymes have very intricate and delicate structures, they need to be stabilized and protected by a support material if they are to be used under challenging catalytic conditions. This highlight focuses on the use of metal-organic frameworks as supports for enzyme encapsulation and subsequent catalytic applications. De novo and post-synthetic methods of encapsulation are discussed and the relative catalytic activities of the enzyme@MOF composites versus free enzymes are highlighted.
