We report a novel Pd(0) loaded metal-organic framework (MOF) catalyst, namely Pd@Zn2(azoBDC)2(dabco). The efficient catalytic activity and good recyclability of the heterogeneous catalyst carrier are demonstrated through the probe reduction reaction of 4-nitrophenol (NP) to 4-aminophenol (AP) by sodium borohydride (NaBH4).
