Advanced porous materials open up new frontiers for sensing, drug delivery and host matrices for biomedical applications because selective/active release/sequestration of precise molecules is expected. Different types of materials are currently being investigated and paths which move between material optimization and patterning processes are clearly observed for mesoporous materials. Here we present our recent progress on lithographic methodologies to achieve such spatial control for ceramic mesoporous coatings with a particular focus on metal organic frameworks for emerging sensing technology.
