A metal-mediated coordination polymeri-zation method is demonstrated to immobilize organic molecules onto silica particles in the form of coordination polymers. Unique silica@coordination polymer core–shell microspheres are generated, in which the shell thickness is controlled from 65 to 295 nm by varying the amount of coordination polymer precursors or silica particles.
