Acid-resistant, water-stable MOFs with ultra-large 1D channels exhibiting biomimetic catalytic activity have been developed. In their Communication on page 10307 ff., H.-C. Zhou and co-workers report the synthesis, characterization, and catalytic studies of an isostructural series of MOFs designated as PCN-222. The combination of a zirconium cluster and an iron–porphyrin derivative gave rise to PCN-222(Fe), which is highly effective in catalyzing the oxidation of a number of peroxidase substrates.
