Fabrication of hybrid MOF-on-MOF heteroarchitectures can create novel and multifunctional platforms to achieve desired properties. However, only MOFs with similar crystallographic parameters can be hybridized by the classical epitaxial growth method (EGM), which largely suppressed its applications. Herein, we demonstrated a general strategy called internal extended growth method (IEGM) for the feasible assembly of MOFs with distinct crystallographic parameters in an MOF matrix. Various MOFs with diverse functions could be introduced in a modular MOF matrix to form 3D core-satellite pluralistic hybrid system. Additionally, the number of different MOF crystals interspersed could be variable on demand. More importantly, the different MOF crystals distributed in individual domains could be used to further incorporate functional units or enhance target functions.
