The conjugation of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with other materials is an excellent strategy for the production of advanced materials having desired properties and so appropriate applicability. In particular, the integration of MOFs with a flexible paper is expected to form valuable materials in separation technology. Here we report a simple method for the generation of MOF papers through the compact and uniform growth of MOF nanoparticles on the cellulose surface of a carboxymethylated filter paper. The resulting MOF papers show a selective capture ability for negatively charged organic dyes and they can be used for dye separation through simple filtration of a dye solution on the MOF papers. In addition, MOF papers can be reused after a simple washing process without losing their effective dye capture ability.
