Emerging nanoporous materials, such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), are promising low-k dielectrics central to next-generation electronics and high-speed communication. Hitherto, the dielectric characterization of MOFs is scarce, with very limited experimental data for guiding new materials design and synthesis. Herein we demonstrate the efficacy of high-resolution synchrotron infrared (IR) specular reflectance experiments to study the dynamic dielectric properties of a flexible MOF… CONTINUE READING
