Superhydrophobic–Superhydrophilic arrays are used to control the size and shape of freestanding metal–organic framework (MOF) microsheets. The MOF sheets are prepared at the liquid–liquid interface of an aqueous copper acetate solution confined in microdroplets and a 1-octanol solution of trimesic acid. The resulting MOF microsheets can be suspended in solution or transferred to other substrates.
