A perfect fit: Cavity-conform bimetallic Ni/Pd nanoparticles of different composition were generated in the metal–organic framework MIL-101. Experimental evidence and molecular dynamic simulations indicate the existence of mixed bimetallic particles. Pronounced synergistic effects have been observed in liquid-phase catalysis.
