Tuning the structure and function of metal-organic frameworks via linker design.
This critical review of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) highlights advances in MOF synthesis focusing on linker design and examples of building MOFs to reach unique properties, such as unprecedented surface area, pore aperture, molecular recognition, stability, and catalysis, through linkers are described.

Highly stable porous polymer networks with exceptionally high gas-uptake capacities.
For several decades, porous materials have been exploited for their applications in gas storage, but several metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with high surface area and gas-uptake capacity have been reported. Expand
Methane storage in advanced porous materials.
An overview of the current status of the application of these two types of advanced porous materials in the storage of methane is provided, and methods for increasing the applicability of these advanced porous material in methane storage technologies described are described. Expand
Sulfonate-grafted porous polymer networks for preferential CO2 adsorption at low pressure.
IAST calculations using single-component-isotherm data and a 15/85 CO(2)/N(2) ratio at 295 K and 1 bar revealed that the sulfonate-grafted PPN-6 networks show exceptionally high adsorption selectivity for CO( 2) over N(2). Expand
Polyamine-tethered porous polymer networks for carbon dioxide capture from flue gas.
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), a process to separate CO2 from the flue gas of coal-fired power plants and then store it underground, has been proposed to reduce the anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Expand
Shape evolution and self assembly of monodisperse PbTe nanocrystals.
It is possible to use the highly orientated PbTe nanocrystals as building blocks to achieve thickness-controlled film for further manipulation into thermoelectric devices. Expand
Single crystalline magnetite nanotubes.
The synthetic strategy presented here may be extended to a variety of materials such as YBCO, PZT, and LCMO which should provide ideal candidates for fundamental studies of superconductivity, piezoelectricity, and ferromagnetism in nanoscale structures. Expand
Porous materials with pre-designed single-molecule traps for CO₂ selective adsorption.
This work proposes and validate, both experimentally and computationally, a precisely designed cavity, termed a 'single-molecule trap', with the desired size and properties suitable for trapping target CO(2) molecules, and demonstrates the trapping effect. Expand
Porous Polymer Networks: Synthesis, Porosity, and Applications in Gas Storage/Separation
Three porous polymer networks (PPNs) have been synthesized by the homocoupling of tetrahedral monomers. Like other hyper-cross-linked polymer networks, these materials are insoluble in conventionalExpand
Cooperative Cluster Metalation and Ligand Migration in Zirconium Metal-Organic Frameworks.
This work provides a powerful tool to functionalize Zr-MOFs with other metals, but also structurally elucidates the formation mechanism of the resulting heterometallic MOFs. Expand
