Title: Interior Decoration of Stable Metal–Organic Frameworks

Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a diverse class of hybrid organic/inorganic crystalline materials composed of metal-containing nodes held in place by organic linkers. Through a discerning selection of these components, many properties such as the internal surface area, cavity size and shape, catalytic properties, thermal properties, and mechanical properties may be manipulated. Because of this high level of tunability, MOFs have been heralded as ideal platforms for various applications including gas storage, separation, catalysis, and chemical sensing.(1-8) Regrettably, these theoretical possibilities are limited by the reality of constraining conditions for solvothermal synthesis, which typically include high temperatures (usually over 100 °C), the use of specific solvents, and necessary exposure to acidic or basic conditions. In order to incorporate more delicate functionalities, postsynthesis decoration methods were developed. This feature article focuses on developed interior decoration methods for stable MOFs and the dynamic relationship between such methods and MOF stability. In particular, methods to transform organic, inorganic, and organometallic MOF parts as well as combination techniques, the generation of defects, and the inclusion of enzymes are addressed.
