Abstract

The detection of explosives using chemical sensors is of paramount importance. Recent studies based on luminescent metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have shown that these materials can be effective detectors of high explosive substances. In the current study, we describe the explosive sensing properties of a series of zinc-based fluorescence active MOFs (or FAMs) built on prototypical paddle-wheel secondary building units.
