Guest-Responsive Metal–Organic Frameworks as Scaffolds for Separation and Sensing Applications

Guest-Responsive Metal–Organic Frameworks as Scaffolds for Separation and Sensing Applications
Aamod V. Desai, Partha Samanta, Avishek Karmakar, Sujit K. Ghosh
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) have evolved to be next-generation utility materials because of their serviceability in a wide variety of applications. Built from organic ligands with multiple binding sites in conjunction with metal ions/clusters, these materials have found profound advantages over their other congeners in the domain of porous materials. The plethora of applications that these materials encompass has motivated material chemists to develop such novel materials, and the catalogue of MOFs is thus ever-escalating. One key feature that MOFs possess is their responsiveness toward incoming guest molecules, resulting in changes in their physical and chemical properties. Such uniqueness generally arises owing to the influenceable ligands and/or metal units that govern the formation of these ordered architectures. The suitable host–guest interactions play an important role in determining the specific responses of these materials and thus find important applications in sensing, catalysis, separation, conduction, etc.
