Embodiments of the present disclosure provide apparatuses, methods and systems for scalable fabrication of thin, nanoporous membranes useful in industrial applications. One embodiment of the present disclosure provides a molecular separation device configured to efficiently separate molecular species. In this particular embodiment, porous hollow fibers form a supporting scaffold for synthesis of a molecular organic framework (MOF) membrane. The MOF membrane may be synthesized on the inner or outer porous hollow fiber surface as well as within the porous fiber wall. Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a variety of methods for producing the aforementioned molecular separation devices as well as methods for producing MOF membranes.
