Applications of Metal-Organic Frameworks in Food Sample Preparation
AbstractFood samples such as milk, beverages, meat and chicken products, fish, etc. are complex and demanding matrices. Various novel materials such as molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs), carbon-based nanomaterials carbon nanotubes, graphene oxide and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been recently introduced in sample preparation to improve clean up as well as to achieve better recoveries, all complying with green analytical chemistry demands. Metal-organic frameworks are hybrid organic inorganic materials, which have been used for gas storage, separation, catalysis and drug delivery. The last few years MOFs have been used for sample preparation of pharmaceutical, environmental samples and food matrices. Due to their high surface area MOFs can be used as adsorbents for the development of sample preparation techniques of food matrices prior to their analysis with chromatographic and spectrometric techniques with great performance characteristics.
