An Adaptable Peptide-Based Porous Material
A crystalline porous solid with adaptable porosity is reported, in which a simple dipeptide linker is arranged in a regular array by coordination to metal centers, suggesting an energy landscape similar to that required for protein folding.
A luminescent mixed-lanthanide metal-organic framework thermometer.
A luminescent mixed lanthanide metal-organic framework approach has been realized to explore luminescence thermometers that is not only more robust, reliable, and instantaneous but also has higher sensitivity than the parent MOF Tb-DMBDC based on one emission at a wide range from 10 to 300 K.
A Zn4O-containing doubly interpenetrated porous metal-organic framework for photocatalytic decomposition of methyl orange.
A doubly interpenetrated semiconducting MOF Zn(4)O(2,6-NDC)(3)(DMF)(1.5)(H(2)O)(0.5)·4DMF·7.5H(2)O (UTSA-38) of a cubic net has been constructed, which exhibits photocatalytic activity for the
Seawater uranium sorbents: preparation from a mesoporous copolymer initiator by atom-transfer radical polymerization.
N nanoporous polymers based on the vinylbenzyl chloride (VBC) monomer and the DVB cross-linking agent are reported, which are the first examples of ATRP initiators in which the initiator species is located within the framework of the mesoporous support.
Hierarchical Metal-Organic Framework Hybrids: Perturbation-Assisted Nanofusion Synthesis.
A general template-free synthesis of hierarchical microporous crystalline frameworks, such as MOFs and Prussian blue analogues (PBAs), based on the kinetically controlled precipitation (perturbation), with simultaneous condensation and redissolution of polymorphic nanocrystallites in the mother liquor, yielding hierarchical MOF materials with intriguing porosity in the gram scale.
Template-free synthesis of hierarchical porous metal-organic frameworks.
This template-free strategy enables the preparation of stable frameworks with mesopores exceeding 15 nm, which was previously unattained in the synthesis of MOFs by the ligand-extension method.
Mesoporous Prussian blue analogues: template-free synthesis and sodium-ion battery applications.
The reported method stands as an environmentally friendly and low-cost alternative to hard or soft templating for the fabrication of mesoporous materials.
Recent progress in the syntheses of mesoporous metal–organic framework materials
Abstract Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), which are constructed from the assembly of metal ions or metal clusters with organic linkers, represent a new class of crystalline porous materials with
Uranium Adsorbent Fibers Prepared by Atom-Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) from Poly(vinyl chloride)-co-chlorinated Poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-co-CPVC) Fiber
The need to secure future supplies of energy attracts researchers in several countries to a vast resource of nuclear energy fuel: uranium in seawater (estimated at 4.5 billion tons in seawater). In
