MP8 is a micro-enzyme (< 1300 Å3) that performs two distinct catalytic functions (microperoxydase and monoxygenase) and is a very useful and exceptionally active molecule for biocatalytic purposes, if stabilized properly. It has thus been immobilized into a highly porous and robust MOF, MIL-101(Cr) and the obtained data show the enhancement of the catalytic activity of MP8 after immobilization.
