Micro-patterning of a metal organic framework (MOF) from a solution of precursors is achieved by local laser heating. Nano-sized MOFs are formed, followed by rapid assembly due to convective flows around a heat-induced micro-bubble. This laser-induced bottom-up technique is the first to suggest simultaneous synthesis and micro-patterning of MOFs, alleviating the need for pre-preparation and stabilization.
