Recent status on MOF thin films on transparent conductive oxides substrates (ITO or FTO)

Abstract

The interest in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) is growing exponentially due to their remarkable properties (high porosity, large surface area, thermal, and mechanical stability). They are usually synthesized as bulk crystalline solid materials. However, the sustainable development of MOFs as technological systems, material design and tuning their shape are of prime importance in order to use them as efficient devices. The development of deposition or the growing approaches of these materials on various supports provide useful techniques to reach this goal. Moreover, to study some particular properties, such as optical, catalysis, or even photocatalysis, MOFs need to be attached onto transparent conductive oxide (TCO) supports, such as indium tin oxide (ITO) or fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO). This review is focused on the early advances in the growth and deposition of MOFs on TCO supports via various conventional methods.
