A self-assembly technology allows metal–organic framework materials to constitute a honeycomb internal structure while being shaped into millimeter-scale spheres. The ZIF-8 load is up to 83 wt% through solidification of chitosan (CS). This approach can be expanded to other morphologies (fibers) or crystals and is transformative for industrial manufacturing of nanomaterials.
