New Linker Combo Gives Novel MOF

Metal-organic framework compound suggests surface area alone may not be predictive of these materials' hydrogen storage-ability
Department: Science & Technology | Collection: Climate Change

A metal-organic framework (MOF) built from two organic linker groups instead of the usual one provides strong evidence that surface area alone may not be an indicator of these materials' hydrogen storage ability. Just over a year ago, Adam J. Matzger's group at the University of Michigan added a twist to making MOFs, which are being explored for gas storage, catalysis, and chemical separation applications. By combining zinc with two different types of . . .
