This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Encapsulation of biomoleucles in metal organic frameworks (MOFs) has recently attracted significant interest because of the benign process including room temperature, neutral pH and without the requirement of any other chemical reagents. Also, these biomolecule incorporated MOFs (biomolecules@MOFs) have demonstrated their potential in biomolecule protection and controlled release for various applications such as drug delivery, vaccines, etc. This work aims to develop a general strategy to make biomolecules@MOFs via a biomimetic mineralization process.
