Engineering design toward exploring the functional group substitution in 1D channels of Zn–organic frameworks upon nitro explosives and antibiotics detection

Three MOFs (1, 2, 3) with distinct functional groups were prepared. 2 exhibited moderate sensitivity for the detection of specific explosives/antibiotics at the same concentration, which was lower and higher than that of 3 and 1, respectively.

About this collection

Welcome to a Spotlight themed collection published by Dalton Transactions.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), comprised of metal ions and bridging organic ligands, have emerged as an important family of porous materials. Owing to their highly porous structures with functional properties, MOFs are considered as one of the most ideal materials for chemical sensors as the sensing properties are strongly influenced by surface interaction between analyte molecules and pore walls of MOFs. The application of MOFs covers the fields of sensing toward a variety of target compounds, including gases, solvents, explosives, ions, pollutions, and biological molecules. This spotlight collection focuses on the latest studies on MOF-based sensors published in Dalton Transactions, showing highly sensitive detections and the future research directions using MOFs with respect to general sensing principles and analytical performance.

This collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Takashi Uemura (University of Tokyo).

Articles will be added to this themed collection as soon as possible after they are published. Please return to this page frequently to see the collection grow.
