New MOFs Are Conductive
A new sulfur-and-zinc-based metal-organic framework (MOF) compound conducts charge nearly as well as the most conductive organic semiconductors, a team of researchers based in the U.S. and Japan report in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (DOI: 10.1021/ja3059827). The study demonstrates that a typically nonconducting family of materials can be tuned synthetically to conduct charge, an advance that may lead to applications in electrochemistry . . .
