Zeolite-Like Frameworks Have Large Cavities
A process for synthesizing metal-organic frameworks offers the potential for introducing tunable organic functionalities into large zeolite-like cavities, according to Mohamed Eddaoudi of the University of South Florida and coworkers (Chem. Commun., published online Feb. 2, dx.doi.org/10.1039/b600188m).
The team used a molecular building block approach to construct two novel zeolite-like metal-organic frameworks (ZMOFs) by bridging tetrahedral building units containing indium(III) ions (green) with doubly deprotonated 4,5-imidazoledicarboxylic acid linkers in the presence of a . . .
