Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline porous materials that offer modularity through diverse combinations of metal nodes and linkers, as well as tailorable surface chemistry and structure, along with tunable conductivity. The integration of these framework materials onto fibers can result in robust and flexible MOF-based textiles with enhanced functionality and applicability. This thesis illustrates the versatility of multifunctional MOF-integrated textile systems, showcasing their unique properties and the advantages of installing MOFs at the fiber level.
