Metal–organic frameworks for radionuclide sequestration from aqueous solution: a brief overview and outlook

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this Frontier article, we pursue the sequestration of radionuclides from aqueous solution by using recently emerging metal–organic framework (MOF) materials. The design of MOF materials and their corresponding sorption properties towards radionuclides (137Cs, 90Sr, 238U, 79Se, and 99Tc) as well as their interaction mechanisms are highlighted. The present challenges and future prospects of removing radionulides with MOFs as sorbents are also demonstrated.
