In Situ Monitoring of Metal-Organic Framework Assembly with MP-SPR

Application Note #112

Metal Organic Framework (MOF) deposited on a gold sensor slide with self-assembled monolayer (SAM).

Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) instrument was used for precise in situ monitoring of the Metal Organic Framework (MOF) assembly of [Cu3BTC2(H2O)n]. MOF layer complex refractive index (RI) was calculated in two different media, in air and in ethanol. Based on known layer thickness (1.3nm/bilayer) complex RI was determined to be in ethanol ñ = 1.5085 + i 0.0065 and in air ñ = 3.784 + i 0.0123.
