The facile bottom-up fabrication of a perfect preferentially-oriented MOF nanofilm, NAFS-1 on a solid surface, which is endowed with highly crystalline order both in the out-of-plane and in-plane orientations to the substrate, as determined by synchrotron X-ray surface crystallography, was achieved by the unique combination of a layer-by-layer growth technique coupled with the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method.
