Fatty acids as biomimetic replication agents for luminescent metal–organic framework patterns

Author affiliations

Abstract

Luminescent metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are known to spontaneously self-assemble on human fingerprints. Here, we investigate the different chemical components of fingerprints and determine that MOF growth is predominantly induced by insoluble fatty acids. This finding shows that these simple biomolecules can be employed for the precise positioning of luminescent MOFs.
