In this work we carry out a short review of the fusion of nanotechnology and nanoscale MOFs (nMOFs) that have significant potential for biomedical applications. In addition to analyzing the therapeutic applications of its use in imaging and biosensors and the fundamental challenges and perspectives, we propose a series of improvements and future studies.

Keywords: Nanoscale Metal-Organic Frameworks; nMOF; therapeutic; imaging; sensing

Are all MOFs nanoscale systems? Can they be tailored by synthesis or physically/mechanically modified to reach sub-nano molecular levels or mirco/macro aggregates?
