Structurally related to MOF-5, the cobalt(II)-containing metal-organic framework MFU-1 is stable to hydrolysis. Catalytic turnover is achieved in oxidation reactions with redox-active MFU- 1, and the solid catalyst is easily recovered from the reaction mixture. Catalytic transformations have been shown to occur inside the pores of the microporous solid.
