A summary of the article is shown below:

This paper describes the fabrication of covalent triazine framework nanosheets encapsulated Ag nanoparticles (Ag0@CTFN) via a simple combination of ultrasonic exfoliation and solution infiltration method. The as-prepared Ag0@CTFN displays an order layered-sheet structure with abundant micropores and mesopores, while ultrafine Ag nanoparticles are confined and stabilized in their interlayers through the interaction between N sites of triazine units and Ag nanoparticles. Considering that the Ag0@CTFN possesses the merits of high nitrogen, low density, and abundant basic sites, it was thus believed to have enough abilities to adsorb and activate CO2 in the CO2 conversion and catalysis. Importantly, the Ag0@CTFN, as a heterogeneous catalyst, showed highly catalytic activity in the carboxylation of various alkynes with CO2 at ambient pressure and low temperature. This catalyst also exhibited good functional-group tolerance and excellent stability without any significant loss of its activity after six recycles. This work not only achieves valuable and novel composite material but also provides the first application of covalent triazine framework nanosheets in chemical conversion of CO2, opening a new field in preparing recyclable heterogeneous catalysts to accelerate the utilization of CO2.
