Abstract

A highly porous bio-MOF, medi-MOF-1, constructed from Zn and the pharmaceutical ingredient curcumin has been successfully synthesized. It can display permanent porosity with a surface area as high as ca. 3002 m2 g−1, which exhibits great potential in bioapplications. Its ibuprofen delivery ability, biodegradation and cytotoxicity were also studied.
