A Fe(II)-Pd(II) heteronuclear metal-organic cages (MOC-42) is obtained by stepwise synthesis. The solution structure of MOC-42 is characterized by NMR, and the decomposition kinetics is studied by UV-Vis absorption spectra. This new comprehensive chemistry experiment is appropriate in difficulty, and the studying methods are various, which enables students to flexibly apply the existing basic chemical knowledge and modern instrument techniques. It is beneficial to train the ability of initiative thinking and practice competency of the students.

Key words: Metal-organic cage, Stepwise assembly, Decomposition kinetics, Physical chemistry property
