Metal-Organic Framework: a versatile platform for sensing technology

By | Cleanrooms, Semiconductors, Sensing Application

The detection of compounds with sensors has broad applications, from common ones like the blood glucose sensor (for diabetes control) to the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to monitor air quality in the industrial work environment. In the sensing technology, the desirable characteristics in a sensor are high sensitivity, selectivity, quick response time, stability, reusability, and low cost. In most cases, existing technology is limited by their detection limit or low reliability, to improve these features the necessity of new materials has increased the research in this area in the last decades. This blog is dedicated to describing a new class of materials, Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), which have shown promising results on different sensor applications.
