Excessive levels of heavy metal ions in water has raised concerns to human health and
environment. Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) is a popular adsorbent material due to its high
adsorption capacity and ability to adsorb various heavy metal ions. UiO-66-NH2 can remove
Hg2+ with adsorption capacity at 194 mg g-1 and rate constant at 0.006 g mg-1 min-1. Furthermore,
UiO-66-NH2 was grown on polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fiber for metal-sensing properties.
UiO-66-NH2 on PVDF fiber can be used as a sensor to detect and monitor concentration of
various heavy metal ions existing in aqueous solution.
