In the frame of Latvian-Lithuanian-Taiwan cooperation project, research group from Latvia has been focusing on the design of heterogeneous catalysts for acyl transfer reactions. The design of the catalyst was based on covalent attachment of catalytically active DMAP subunit by post-synthetic modification of Zn-based frameworks such as ZIF-90 and IRMOF-3 and Al-based framework MIL-53(Al)-NH_2
