Summary Cytochrome P-450 enzymes catalyze the oxidation of various unactivated alkanes and alkenes with distinguished reaction specificity, substrate selectivity, and high efficiency under mild conditions. Encapsulation of synthetic MP and MPc in the nanometer-sized supercages of zeolite, namely "ship-in-a-bottle", is a promising approach, in which microporous zeolites play the similar role as does an apoprotein for a P-450 enzyme. We report here a novel and efficient "build-a-bottle-around-the-ship" method for the nanoinclusion of metalloporphyrin in the supercage of faujasite-Y.
