Abstract

Recently, the potential application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been recognized for removal and sensing of various organic pollutants (e.g., nitroaromatic compounds, pesticides, polycyclic aromatic compounds, and herbicides) due to their unique tunable and versatile properties. In this paper, we reviewed the recent experimental and computational efforts to develop MOFs for adsorption removal, catalytic conversion, and sensing of nitroaromatic compounds. To this end, we first classified nitroaromatic compounds in association with their toxicity. Then, we reviewed current advances made in the application of MOFs towards removal of nitroaromatic compounds (based on adsorption/catalysis) and their sensing applications. Furthermore, the discussion was made for the practical performance of MOFs for such applications. Finally, the future prospects for MOFs are described in the fields of adsorption removal, catalytic conversion, and sensing of nitroaromatic compounds.
