Abstract

In this work we describe an approach to fabricate MOF (metal-organic framework) platelets with predefined shapes and well-defined thicknesses. The process is based on growing thin, highly oriented and ordered MOF films by selective liquid-phase epitaxy on prestructured organic substrates. In a second step, the MOF platelets are delaminated employing a lift-off process. The freestanding MOF platelets were characterized with TEM and SEM, which showed no evidence of fracture or deformation of the delaminated shapes.
