We demonstrate a high-resolution method as an efficient tool to in situ characterize partially reversible assembly and aggregation of metal-organic framework (MOF) colloids. Based on the gas-phase electrophoresis, the primary size and the degree of aggregation of the MOF-525 crystals are tunable by pH adjustment and mobility selection. These findings allow for the further size control of MOF colloids and prove the capability of semiquantitative analysis for the MOF-based platforms in a variety of aqueous formulations (e.g., biomedical applications).
