Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a new class or nano-porous materials with readily tunable structures. Their use in gas storage, sensors, catalysts, and electronics is only beginning to be explored. Fundamental data is needed. Using in situ optical methods, we wish to understand the fundamental chemistry and materials science of solution-based deposition of MOF thin films. These films could potentially provide a model system for measurements of physio-chemical properties useful for model validation and the designs of new materials.
