Abstract

original image

Let your light shine: The photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to the formate anion under visible light irradiation is for the first time realized over a photoactive Ti-containing metal–organic framework, NH2-MIL-125(Ti), which is fabricated by a facile substitution of ligands in the UV-responsive MIL-125(Ti) material (see scheme; TEOA=triethanolamine).
