Porous materials find widespread application in storage, separation, and catalytic technologies. We report a crystalline porous solid with adaptable porosity, in which a simple dipeptide linker is arranged in a regular array by coordination to metal centers. Experiments reinforced by molecular dynamics simulations showed that low-energy torsions and(More)
The soot produced as a byproduct of fullerene synthesis by arc-evaporation consists of a microporous carbon with a surface area, after activation with carbon dioxide, of ca. 700 m2 g-’. Here, we investigate the structure of this material, and its appearance after electron irradiation and high-temperature heat treatment, using highresolution electron(More)
Scientific and technological interest in porous materials with molecule-sized channels and cavities has led to an intense search for controlled chemical routes to systems with specific properties. This Account details our work on directing the assembly of open-framework structures based on molecules and investigating how the response of nanoporous examples(More)
We present the synthesis and structural characterization of a transition metal oxide hydride, LaSrCoO3H0.7, which adopts an unprecedented structure in which oxide chains are bridged by hydride anions to form a two-dimensional extended network. The metal centers are strongly coupled by their bonding with both oxide and hydride ligands to produce magnetic(More)
A homochiral microporous material is presented. The phase has 47% permanently porous void volume and is shown to have >1 nm diameter pores with three-dimensional channels using probe molecule sorption. Enantioselective guest sorption is strongly dependent on guest size. The homochiral microporous phase was identified by reactive selection from a(More)
High-conductivity oxide ion electrolytes are needed to reduce the operating temperature of solid-oxide fuel cells. Oxide mobility in solids is associated with defects. Although anion vacancies are the charge carriers in most cases, excess (interstitial) oxide anions give high conductivities in isolated polyhedral anion structures such as the apatites. The(More)
The ternary iron chalcogenide, Fe(1.03)Se(0.57)Te(0.43) is a member of the recently discovered family of Fe-based superconductors with an ambient pressure T(c) of 13.9 K and a simple structure comprising layers of edge-sharing distorted Fe(Se/Te)(4) tetrahedra separated by a van der Waals gap. Here we study the relationship between its structural and(More)
Combining long-range magnetic order with polarity in the same structure is a prerequisite for the design of (magnetoelectric) multiferroic materials. There are now several demonstrated strategies to achieve this goal, but retaining magnetic order above room temperature remains a difficult target. Iron oxides in the +3 oxidation state have high magnetic(More)
Crystals of the metal-organic framework material Ni(2)(4,4'-bipyridine)(3)(NO(3))(4) (A) have been grown by reaction of Ni(NO(3))(2).6H(2)O and 4,4'-bipyridine in methanol solution. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction experiments show that the ladder structure of the framework is maintained after desolvation of the material, resulting in the production of a(More)
The synthesis and characterization of two members of a family of porous magnetic materials is described. The structures of Co4(SO4)(OH)6(C2N2H8)0.5*3H2O and Co4(SO4)(OH)6(C6N2H12)0.5*H2O and their thermal stability can be tailored via the choice of organic pillar. The interactions between the pillaring agent and the compositionally complex inorganic layer(More)
