The effect of water adsorption on the structure of the carboxylate containing metal–organic frameworks Cu-BTC, Mg-MOF-74, and UiO-66
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with metal–carboxylate bonds, including Cu-BTC (HKUST-1), Mg-MOF-74 (Mg/DOBDC), and UiO-66, have been shown to have varying degrees of water stability. The three MOFsExpand

Striped, ellipsoidal particles by controlled assembly of diblock copolymers.
Control of interfacial interactions leads to a dramatic change in shape and morphology for particles based on poly(styrene-b-2-vinylpyridine) diblock copolymers. Key to these changes is the additionExpand

A general approach to controlling the surface composition of poly(ethylene oxide)-based block copolymers for antifouling coatings.
To control the surface properties of a polystyrene-block-poly(ethylene oxide) diblock copolymer, perfluorinated chemical moieties were specifically incorporated into the block copolymer backbone. AExpand
