We demonstrate a novel, simple synthetic method for metal (Ni) NPs in a MOF using the partial thermal decomposition of nickel(II) 2,5-dihydroxyterephthalate (Ni-MOF-74). The Ni NPs inside the Ni-MOF-74 are several nanometers in size, and the size can be precisely controlled by the heating conditions.
