abstract Herein, we present a simple and inexpensive method for the immobilization of Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) particles in the form of pellets and membranes. This processing procedure is possible using polymethacrylate polymer (PMMA) as a binding or coating agent, improving stability and significantly increasing the water repellency. HKUST and MMOF-74 (M = Mg2+, Zn2+, Co2+ or Ni2+) are stable with the processing and high loadings of MOF materials into the processed pellet or membranes. These methods can provide the know-how for the immobilization of MOFs for, for example, application in air purification and the removal of toxic compounds and are well-suited for deployment in air purification devices.
