Metal–organic framework tethering PNIPAM for ON–OFF controlled release in solution

Author affiliations

Abstract

A smart metal–organic framework (MOF) exhibiting controlled release was achieved by modification with a thermoresponsive polymer (PNIPAM) via a surface-selective post-synthetic modification technique. Simple temperature variation readily switches “open” (lower temperature) and “closed” (higher temperature) states of the polymer-modified MOF through conformational change of PNIPAM grafted onto the MOF, resulting in controlled release of the included guest molecules such as resorufin, caffeine, and procainamide.
