Patterned metal-organic framework, ZIF-8 thin films can be generated by using standard photolithography or via selective growth with the aid of microcontact printing. The alternate chemical deposition (of ZIF-8) and physical deposition (of metallic materials) allow the insertion of metal layers in the ZIF-8 film that could serve as multifunctional chemical sensors for vapors and gases.
