In this work, we report on the synthesis and characterization of nanoporous bimetallic metal-organic frameworks (FeCo-BDC). Effects of synthesis time and temperature on the structures, morphology, and catalytic performance of FeCo-BDC were investigated. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) were used to reveal the morphological and textural characteristics. The crystal structure and chemical composition of FeCo-BDC were determined by means of X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) measurements. Interestingly, FeCo-BDC grew into the same crystal structure with different morphology in the temperature of 110-150 °C with 12-48 h. The heterogeneous catalytic activity of FeCo-BDC was tested to activate peroxydisulfate (PDS) and peroxymonosulfate (PMS) for removal of methylene blue (MB). The results found that FeCo-BDC synthesized at 150 °C with 24 h exhibited the best catalytic performance for PMS and obtained 100% of MB removal within 15 min. The abundant unsaturated metal active sites of Fe(II) and Co(II) in the skeleton of FeCo-BDC made a great contribution to the generation of sulfate () and hydroxyl radicals (OH), which resulted in the excellent performance for MB degradation.
