We combined targeted chemistry and computational design to create a crystal structure for porous chromium terephthalate, MIL-101, withverylargeporesizes and surface area. Its zeotype cubic structure has a giant cell volume (∼702,000 cubic angstroms), a hierarchy of extra-large pore sizes (∼30 to 34 angstroms), and a Langmuir surface area for N2 of ∼5900 ± 300 square meters per gram. Beside the usual properties of porous compounds, this solid has potential as a nanomold for monodisperse… 

Chromium terephthalate metal–organic framework MIL-101: synthesis, functionalization, and applications for adsorption and catalysis

Better Living Through Nanopore Chemistry

The synthesis of a highly porous hybrid material based on interlinked organic and inorganic building blocks, designated MIL-101, is crystalline and features a hierarchy of cavity sizes that should stimulate a vigorous search for new hybrid nanoporous catalysts.

Metal-organic framework materials with ultrahigh surface areas: is the sky the limit?

It is demonstrated computationally that by shifting from phenyl groups to "space efficient" acetylene moieties as linker expansion units, the hypothetical maximum surface area for a MOF material is substantially greater than previously envisioned.
