Nowadays, there has been an enormous demand for chemical sensors to detect a variety of analytes for a range of applications, including homeland security guarding, exploration of mineral resources, meteorological observation and telemetry, industrial automation, agricultural fresh preservation, environment monitoring and food quality controlling. Metal-organic frameworks are a new class of porous materials, which are formed by the assembly of metal ions with functional organic ligands. They

This review summarizes some examples of the application of luminescent metal-organic frameworks for sensing of nitro explosives, metal ions, small molecules, pH value and temperature.
