Light Drives Colorful MOF Modification
The chemical nature of metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds can be modified after synthesis by removing protecting groups via photochemical reactions, report researchers at the University of California, San Diego (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., DOI: 10.1002/anie.201004736). Various types of these postsynthetic modification strategies have been used to introduce functional groups into MOFs, which are highly porous crystalline compounds being developed for gas storage and separation, catalysis, and other applications. Typically, these transformations are . . .
