Uniform thin films of a metal-organic framework, which is constructed from free-base porphyrin linkers and hexa-zirconium nodes (MOF-525), are solvothermally grown on conducting substrates. Subsequently, solvothermal post metalations are employed to prepare the Zn-MOF-525 and Co-MOF-525 thin films. All the thin films are electroactive in aqueous media.
