Methods to remove dye pollutants with natural enzyme, like horseradish peroxidase (HRP), are still limited due to high costs and low stability levels. The development of such a method with similar enzymatic activity is important and could be helpful in wastewater disposal. A metal organic framework material, Fe-loaded MOF-545 (Fe), was synthesized in our study as a new way to remove dyes due to its peroxidase-like activity. The structural characterizations of Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) was investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), UV-Vis absorption spectra, and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The peroxidase-like (POD-like) activity of Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) was investigated under different pH and temperature conditions. Because of the Fe added into the MOF-545 structure, the absorption of Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) for acid (anionic) dyes (methyl orange (MO)) was better than for basic (cationic) dyes (methylene blue (MB)). The Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) could give a significant color fading for MO and MB over a short time (about two hours) with peroxidase-like activity. The remarkable capacity of Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) to remove the MO or MB is due to not only physical adsorption, but also degradation of the MO and MB with POD-like activity. Therefore, Fe-loaded MOF-545(Fe) has significant potential regarding dye removal from wastewater.

Nickel-based metal-organic framework (Ni-MOF) was employed as a sacrificial template for the preparation of nickel-cobalt layered double hydroxide (NiCo-LDH) under different hydrolysis time. The template etching rate varied at different hydrolysis time, resulting in variations of the structural and morphology of NiCo-LDHs. The NiCo-LDH/10 sample showed a large specific surface area and the well-oriented larger dimension of thinner sheets due to the sufficient in-situ etching of the Ni-MOF template. The NiCo-LDH/10 was an excellent heterogeneous catalyst to activate peroxymonosulfate (PMS) for highly efficient Reactive Red-120 dye degradation. The results exhibited that the degradation efficiency of the NiCo-LDH/10-PMS catalyst was 89% for RR-120 dye within 10 min in the presence of the PMS system, which is higher than other NiCo-LDHs. Moreover, the other influencing factors such as PMS concentration, catalyst dosage, initial pH were also investigated towards degradation. The radical quenching measurement proved that the sulfate (SO) and hydroxyl (OH) had been indicated as the primary radicals. Besides, the NiCo-LDH/10-PMS catalyst showed excellent reusability even after five consecutive cycles (83.6% of the degradation efficiency). This work offer insight study on the construction of controlled morphology NiCo-LDH heterogeneous structure for high-efficiency PMS activation.
