MOF for effective stabilizer for “Pd” and selective host for CO2: A porous, layered MOF system {[Zn(Himdc)(bipy)].DMF} (1; Himdc=4,5-imidazoledicarboxylate, bipy=4,4'-bipyridine) shows selective gas-storage properties, while the polar nanochannels serve as functional scaffold for the stabilization of highly dispersed Pd nanoparticles. The Pd@MOF1 a hybrid is a highly active and recyclable catalyst for the synthesis of propargylamine derivatives through A3 coupling reactions.
