MOF Housekeeping Improves

Supercritical CO2 scrubs porous metal-organic frameworks, increasing surface area for applications
Department: Science & Technology

METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS (MOFs) have just received a big boost in their already superlative ability to adsorb molecules with the advent of a supercritical CO2 processing technique that thoroughly clears the pores of the crystalline materials (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja808853q). The development, reported by chemists Andrew P. Nelson, Omar K. Farha, Karen L. Mulfort, and . . .
