Novel methods of reactive printing MOF interfaces and their post-synthetic modification (PSM) are introduced in this dissertation. This new method delivers reactants to a desired location on the surface, initiating MOF growth or its modification. The impact of the reaction conditions including solvent system, concentration and molarity of inks, temperature and time of reaction and surface treatment was investigated and optimized.
