About the Spotlight Collection

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.

Articles will be added to this open and on-going spotlight collection as soon as possible after they are published. You can find a selection of the articles below and check out the growing collection online here:

About the Spotlight Collection

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have fascinated scientists for more than a decade. While most work has been devoted to inorganic systems, there has been a distinct increase in metal-organic 2D materials. This themed collection will provide a brief overview of the latest developments of the inorganic and metal-organic 2D materials. It covers everything from synthetic strategies, chemical design, the variety of electronic, chemical and optical properties to applications in catalysis, sensors, energy storage and conversion, electronics and other related areas.

Articles will be added to this open and on-going spotlight collection as soon as possible after they are published. You can find a selection of the articles below and check out the growing collection online here:

About the Spotlight Collection

The research area of molecule-based magnets encompassing single-molecule magnets (SMMs), single-ion magnets (SIMs) and single-chain magnets (SCMs) has been extremely active in recent years. This field is truly interdisciplinary and the advances in this field have been possible only due to a concerted effort from synthetic coordination- and organometallic chemists, physicists, materials scientists, and theoreticians. Research in this field is driven by both academic curiosity as well as the possibility of finding exotic applications such as high-density information to quantum computation. While many challenges remain to be overcome before the potential of these new materials can be realized, there has been substantial progress both in the design and assembly of these new systems as well as in understanding of their properties. This appears to be an appropriate time to bring out a special edition of Dalton Transactions on this multi-disciplinary subject.

Articles will be added to this open and on-going spotlight collection as soon as possible after they are published. You can find a selection of the articles below and check out the growing collection online here:

About the Spotlight Collection

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has been the fastest growing thin-film technology in the semiconductor industry for the last few decades, and is applied in photovoltaics systems and displays. The industrial applications naturally concern only few prototype materials (Al2O3, HfO2, ZnO, TiO2, etc.). However, in recent years the technique has been increasingly exploited towards new application domains and new materials, driving a continued demand for new precursors.

Molecular layer deposition (MLD) is a much less exploited counterpart of ALD for purely organic thin films. Particularly interesting though is the combination of ALD and MLD for hybrid inorganic-organic materials. This combined ALD/MLD technique was introduced in 2008 and it is now strongly emerging for various new MOF-like metal-organic materials and inorganic-organic multilayer structures which are believed to open up novel application possibilities.

Articles will be added to this open and on-going spotlight collection as soon as possible after they are published. You can find a selection of the articles below and check out the growing collection online here:
