original image

Energetic MOFs with 1D, 2D, or 3D structures were synthesized through a self-assembly strategy by using energetic organic linkers to bridge non-toxic metal ions. This new concept for energetic MOFs opens opportunities for developing new-generation primary explosives in the field of energetic materials.
