The energy costs associated with the separation and purification of industrial commodities, such as gases, fine chemicals and fresh water, currently represent around 15 per cent of global energy production, and the demand for such commodities is projected to triple by 2050 (ref. 1). The challenge of developing effective separation and purification… (More)
Impressions can be made for patients with constricted mouth opening with a sectional impression tray that can be assembled and disassembled in the mouth and reassembled outside the mouth.
In this review, we describe two recently implemented conceptual approaches facilitating the design and deliberate construction of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), namely supermolecular building block (SBB) and supermolecular building layer (SBL) approaches. Our main objective is to offer an appropriate means to assist/aid chemists and material designers… (More)
The compressive strength of various artificial stones were tested using air, oven, and microwave oven drying methods to compare the three for drying refractory casts. The microwave oven can be used for rapid drying of refractory casts in removable partial denture construction. However, it should not be used for drying extremely wet casts.
The uniqueness of the rht-MOF platform, based on the singular (3,24)-connected net, allows for the facile design and synthesis of functionalized materials for desired applications. Here we designed a nitrogen-rich trefoil hexacarboxylate (trigonal tri-isophthalate) ligand, which serves to act as the trigonal molecular building block while concurrently… (More)
