Anisotropic mechanical properties of polymorphic hybrid inorganic―organic framework materials with different dimensionalities
Abstract Hybrid inorganic–organic framework materials have recently developed into an important new class of solid-state materials. Their mechanical properties are as yet unexplored, although theyExpand

Mechanical metamaterials with star-shaped pores exhibiting negative and zero Poisson's ratio
Abstract The term “mechanical metamaterials” encompasses a wide range of systems whose anomalous mechanical properties arise primarily from their structure rather than composition. This uniqueExpand

Thermal amorphization of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks.
Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are a family of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) that display network topologies analogous to those seen in zeolites whereby the zeolitic building blocks ofExpand

Improving the mechanical stability of zirconium-based metal–organic frameworks by incorporation of acidic modulators
The ability to retain structural integrity under processing conditions which involve mechanical stress, is essential if metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are to fulfil their potential as seriousExpand

Quantum mechanical predictions to elucidate the anisotropic elastic properties of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks: ZIF-4 vs. ZIF-zni
We use ab initio density functional theory (DFT) to elucidate the mechanical properties of two topologically distinct zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF) materials: ZIF-4 and ZIF-zni, both of whichExpand

Kinetically controlled synthesis of two-dimensional Zr/Hf metal–organic framework nanosheets via a modulated hydrothermal approach
The kinetically controlled synthesis of two-dimensional (2D) metal–organic framework (MOF) nanosheets in the absence of surfactants is rewarding but challenging. We herein describe such aExpand
