Abstract

The combination of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with nano-carbon materials is an emerging field among the researchers now a days. The addition of carbon materials (CNTs/GO) increases the Physico-chemical characteristics of parent MOFs. In this mini review the photocatalytic and Fenton-like oxidation behavior of these hybrid nanocomposites has been discussed. Additionally, the efficient remediation of a number of pollutants (VOCs, heavy metals and toxic gases) through adsorptive removal from atmospheric environment has been presented. Finally, the recyclability and stability of MOFs-C along with future perspectives are also presented at the end of this review.
