Active, selective, and stable: The fabrication of uniform mesoporous Cu3(BTC)2 (BTC: 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate) nanocrystals with tunable size and porosity is reported. The as-synthesized Cu3(BTC)2 structures show high activity, selectivity, and stability for the aerobic oxidation of benzyl alcohol to aldehyde.
