How MOF sensors work

By | Sensing Application | No Comments
Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a novel and exciting platform for sensing technology. Among its applications, we can find the detection of toxic gases, explosives, water pollutants, and biomolecules such as DNA. The variety of molecules detected requires different properties of the sensing material. Therefore, these sensors work under several working principles giving sensors in four categories:

Each principle is described in detail in the following sections and we briefly go over the advantage of MOFs for sensing applications compared to other materials. Read More
