Abstract: To create an artificial structure to remarkably surpass the sensitivity, selectivity and speed of the olfaction system of animals is still a daunting challenge. Herein, we propose a core-sheath pillar (CSP) architecture with a perfect synergistic interface that effectively integrates the advantages of metal–organic frameworks and metal oxides to tackle the above-mentioned challenge. The sheath material, NH₂-MIL-125, can concentrate target analyte, nitro-explosives, by 10¹² times from its vapour. The perfect band-matched synergistic interface enables the TiO₂ core to effectively harvest and utilize visible light. At room temperature and under visible light, CSP (TiO₂, NH₂-MIL-125) shows an unexpected self-promoting analyte-sensing behaviour. Its experimentally reached limit of detection (~0.8 ppq, hexogeon) is 10³ times lower than the lowest one achieved by a sniffer dog or all sensing techniques without analyte pre-concentration. Moreover, the sensor exhibits excellent selectivity against commonly existing interferences, with a short response time of 0.14 min.
