The integration of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) into devices, such as sensors, requires that the MOF is bound to a substrate to give a surface-attached metal–organic framework (SURMOF). In their Communication on page 807 ff. R. A. Fischer, C. Wöll, et al. describe the liquid-phase epitaxial growth of a MOF with camphorate as a chiral framework component. The different adsorption kinetics of pairs of enantiomeric molecules were monitored with a quartz crystal microbalance.
