Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs) Linkers

Metal-organic framework (MOF) materials use inorganic metal ions as structural centers and basic organic ligands to undergo coordination reactions under certain catalysis and temperature conditions, and generate coordination bonds through coordination reactions. Molecules are connected to each other to form a new material with porous network characteristics. Briefly, metal-organic frameworks are coordination networks with organic ligands that contain potential voids. Coordinated networks are coordinated compounds that extend through one-dimensionally repeating coordination entities but have cross-links between two or more single chain, loop, or helical links, or through two or three repeating coordination entities. These coordinated compounds with cross-links are known as metal organic framework linkers.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been widely used in biomedical research, especially as platforms for cancer treatment. The main reasons are as follows: First, MOFs have the characteristics of large specific surface area and adjustable pore size. They can be used as an excellent and efficient drug nanocarrier, significantly improving the bioavailability and tumor targeting of related drugs. Second, almost any metal ion can form MOFs with suitable ligands. Therefore, MOFs of specific metal ions can also be prepared, which can not only greatly improve the efficiency of cancer tumor treatment, but also confer other functions in treatment.
