Abstract: The main focus of this thesis is about the control over the size and morphologies of Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs) nanocrystals, as well as the synthesis of hybrid structures composed of MOFs nanocrystals and other functional materials. The integration of metal nanoparticles with MOFs nanocrystals, with controlled distribution and size limitation of metal nanoparticles, could be well-obtained and the catalytic properties of the products were well-examined. Meanwhile, the mechanical properties enhancement of MOFs nanocrystals with controlled size and morphologies have be achieved through the wet chemistry approach to form the complicated core-shell architectures. Moreover, an unique growth pathway of MOFs nanocrystals on the template composed of 2-dimensional gold nanowires located at the interface was developed, resulting the hybrid structures of MOFs@Au at the interface as well. Last but not least, an interesting precursor-induced transition pathway has been developed to prepare the 2-dimensional MOFs microplates.
