Infrared laser writing of MOFs

Author affiliations


An infrared (IR) laser machine is used for the synthesis of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). Solutions containing metal ions and organic ligands are casted on glass substrates. MOF crystals are formed at the positions the IR laser irradiated, resulting in the patterning of MOFs.
