One-Step Synthesis of Hybrid Core-Shell Metal-Organic Frameworks.

Epitaxial growth of MOF-on-MOF composite is an evolving research topic in the quest for multifunctional materials. In previously reported methods, the core-shell MOFs were synthesized via a stepwise strategy that involved growing the shell-MOFs on top of the preformed core-MOFs with matched lattice parameters. However, the inconvenient stepwise synthesis… CONTINUE READING
