We are delighted to share with you our Spotlight Collection on MOF Sensors.
This Spotlight Collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Takashi Uemura (University of Tokyo).
Does your research fit into this subject area? If so, we would welcome your contribution.
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:
