Vapor phase detection of nitroaromatic and nitroaliphatic explosives by fluorescence active metal–organic frameworks

Author affiliations

Abstract

The detection of explosives using chemical sensors is of paramount importance. Recent studies based on luminescent metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have shown that these materials can be effective detectors of high explosive substances. In the current study, we describe the explosive sensing properties of a series of zinc-based fluorescence active MOFs (or FAMs) built on prototypical paddle-wheel secondary building units.
