Lowest density MOF to date
With a density of just 0.124 g/cm3, NU-1301 now holds the record for lowest density metal-organic framework, or MOF. Although NU-1301 is made up of just uranium oxide and tricarboxylate organic linker units, the MOF’s structure is incredibly complex: Its unit cell measures 173 Å across and is composed of 816 uranium nodes and 816 organic linkers (Science 2017, DOI: 10.1126/science.aam7851).
