A new platform described as the liquid metal/metal oxide (LM/MO) framework is introduced. The constituent spherical structures of these frameworks are made of micro- to nanosized liquid metal spheres and nanosized metal oxides. These LM/MO frameworks demonstrate high sensitivity towards low concentrations of heavy metal ions and enhanced solar light driven photocalalytic activities.
