Abstract: A catalytic system based on OX-1 metal-organic framework nanosheets is reported, incorporating catalytically active palladium (Pd) species. The Pd@OX-1 guest@host system is rapidly synthesised via a facile single-pot supramolecular assembly method, with the possibility of controlling the Pd loading. The structures of the re-sulting framework and of the active Pd species before and after catalytic reactions are studied in detail using a wide variety of techniques including synchrotron radiation infrared spectroscopy, inelastic neutron scattering and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. Crystals of the resulting Pd@OX-1 composite material contain predomi-nantly atomic and small cluster Pd species, which selectively reside on benzene rings of the benzenedicarbox-ylate (BDC) linkers. The composites are shown to efficiently catalyse the Suzuki coupling and Heck arylation reactions under a variety of conditions. Pd@OX-1 further shows potential to be recycled for at least five cycles of each reaction as well as an ability to recapture active Pd species during both catalytic reactions.
