Keywords Fe-based MOFs Photocatalysis Fe–O cluster Light excitation Structural inﬂuence Introduction The problems of global energy shortage and environmental deterioration have simulated a new enthusiasm for research activities on efﬁcient utilization of solar energy [1–4]. Ever since the initial study of a photoelectron-chemical cell using semiconducting TiO coupled with a Pt electrode for H evolution by Fujishima and 2 2 Honda in 1972 , the transformation of the abundant solar energy to chemical energy by means of semiconductor-based photocatalysis has drawn extensive research interest [6–12]. During the past two decades, extensive effort has been devoted to developing new types of semiconductor-based photocatalysts. A variety of inorganic semiconductors including metal oxides [13–15], sulﬁdes [16, 17] and oxynitrides  as well as metal-free organic semiconductors [19, 20] have been developed for photocatalysis. In addition to the well-studied semiconductors, metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), a class of 3-D crystalline micro–mesoporous hybrid materials constructed from metal or metal cluster nodes interconnected with multi-dentated organic linkers, are recently emerging as a new type of photocatalytic materials [21–27]. An early study by Zecchina’s group on the optical spectrospcopy of MOF-5, a Zn- containing MOF, proposed that Zn O clusters in MOF-5 behave as
