Jia Huo, Marco Marcello, Ashesh Garai and Darren Bradshaw MOF-Polymer Composite Microcapsules Derived from Pickering Emulsions Advanced Materials 25
Hollow composite microcapsules are prepared by the assembly of pre-formed nanocrystals of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) around emulsion droplets, followed by interfacial polymerisation of the interior. The micropores of the MOF crystals embedded within a semipermeable hierarchically structured polymeric membrane are an effective combination for the retention of encapsulated dye molecules. Release can be triggered however by acid dissolution of the MOF component.
