MOFs Made From Flexible Polymers Buck Conventional Wisdom
A new study has shown that organic polymers can be used to make crystalline framework compounds, contradicting common chemical intuition. The finding may lead to a novel, broad class of porous materials with possible applications in gas separation and storage, catalysis, and drug delivery (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, DOI: 10.1002/anie.201502733).
The burgeoning field of metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds owes some of its rapid growth to . . .
