2D Magnetic MOFs with Micron-Lateral Size by Liquid Exfoliation

The isolation in large amounts of high-quality flakes of 2D MOFs remains a challenge. In this work, we develop a liquid exfoliation procedure to obtain nanosheets for a whole family of Fe-based magnetic MOFs, MUV-1-X. High-quality crystalline layers with lateral sizes of 8 µm and thicknesses of 4 nm, which keep the structural integrity and magnetic properties, are obtained.
