Luminescent sensors based on metal-organic frameworks Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2017 Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a fascinating class of highly porous materials composed of metal ions/clusters and organic linkers, which promise great potential in numerous fields. Recently, the use of MOFs as luminescent sensors has been extensively explored due to their unique crystallinity, tunable porosity and structural diversity. In this review, we intend to highlight some of recent studies in this active research area and update the database of various luminescent MOF-based sensors on the basis of different sensing targets including ions, organic molecules, and gases, and temperature.
