Researchers have found a simple, fast way to make thin films of metal-organic frameworks, or MOFs (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja307953m). The two-step technique allows chemists to control the film thickness and could work with many types of MOFs. Current methods for producing these films are time-consuming and aren’t compatible with MOFs that require harsh synthesis conditions, says . . .
