What is it about?

Ln-MOFs can be integrated on the structure (cell wall and organelles) of filamentous fungi. They can be easily visualized using conventional fluorescence microscopes.

Why is it important?

We present a straightforward method to functionalize these microorganisms, open new opportunities to study them by bio-image.


It is possible to modulate the physicochemical properties of such biohybrids, simply varying the abiotic component.
