Custom Frameworks With Tailored Metal Vertices
Exceptionally porous metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds have been prepared by coupling large metal-biomolecule clusters with simple organic linker molecules, according to work published in Nature Communications (DOI: 10.1038/ncomms1618). The extreme porosity of MOFs compared with other porous materials along with their potential application in gas storage and separation, catalysis, and other areas has driven extensive research and some commercialization efforts. Nearly all synthetic . . .
