State of the art methods and challenges of luminescent metal–organic frameworks for antibiotic detection
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a burgeoning class of crystalline materials constructed from metal cations/clusters and organic ligands with various potential applications. Thus, luminescent MOFs display potential applications in smart sensing with excellent sensitivity, accuracy, anti-jamming, stability, and selectivity. MOFs possess their intrinsic luminescent property from metal cations, organic ligands, and other luminescent species via ingenious design and post-modification. Luminescent MOFs can be used as advanced detection materials for various antibiotics through their luminescent signal response, including the emission intensity and location. Herein, for the first time, we intend to provide a comprehensive overview on the state-of-the-art methods and challenges of antibiotic detection by luminescent MOFs.
