Kinetic control of metal-organic framework crystallization investigated by time-resolved in situ X-ray scattering.

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are among the most sophisticated nanostructured solids: they often possess high surface areas and pore volumes, with the possibility of finetuning their chemical environment by either selecting the appropriate building blocks or by postsynthetic functionalization. For many frameworks, flexibility of the lattice allows them to… (More)
