Exceptional chemical and thermal stability of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks
Study of the gas adsorption and thermal and chemical stability of two prototypical members, ZIF-8 and -11, demonstrated their permanent porosity, high thermal stability, and remarkable chemical resistance to boiling alkaline water and organic solvents. Expand
Reticular synthesis and the design of new materials
This work has shown that highly porous frameworks held together by strong metal–oxygen–carbon bonds and with exceptionally large surface area and capacity for gas storage have been prepared and their pore metrics systematically varied and functionalized. Expand
A route to high surface area, porosity and inclusion of large molecules in crystals
The design, synthesis and properties of crystalline Zn4O(1,3,5-benzenetribenzoate)2 are reported, a new metal-organic framework with a surface area estimated at 4,500 m2 g-1 that combines this exceptional level of surface area with an ordered structure that has extra-large pores capable of binding polycyclic organic guest molecules.

Preparation and Enhanced Hydrostability and Hydrogen Storage Capacity of CNT@MOF-5 Hybrid Composite
Metal−organic frameworks (MOFs) are a rapidly growing class of microporous materials. Various MOFs with tailored nanoporosities have recently been developed as potential storage media for naturalExpand
Microwave synthesis of a porous metal-organic framework, zinc terephthalate MOF-5
Organic-inorganic porous hybrid materials are currently of great interest and importance for the novel coordination structure, relatively facile preparation, special properties and potentialExpand
High-nuclearity oxomolybdenum(V) complexes
Abstract During the past decade, a new family of high nuclearity oxometalates has emerged, oxomolybdenum(V) complexes whose d-electrons are localized in Mo v -Mo v bonds. The structure types of allExpand
Tautomeric Fluxional Process in Metal Complexes. Insight into Cobalt(III) and Pentamethylcyclopentadienylrhodium(III) Complexes of 2-Mercaptopyrimidine Ligand
Studies have been carried out on the unusual molecular nonrigidity of CoⅢ(PymS)3 and Cp* RhⅢ(PymS)2(PymS:2-mercaptopyrimidine). The crystal structure of CoⅢ(PymS)3 approximates to an octahedral merExpand
Porous metal-organic polyhedra: 25 A cuboctahedron constructed from 12 Cu2(CO2)4 paddle-wheel building blocks.
The paddle-wheel cluster adopted by copper(II) acetate, Cu2(CO2)4, is sought to use as a rigid SBU for addressing challenges of rigid porous frameworks with open metal sites where it is possible to functionalize the pores with different ligands. Expand
