Guests for Conductors Thin films of metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds are generally poor conductors because the linking organic groups are usually insulators with little π-orbital conjugation. Talin et al. (p. 66, published online 5 December) show that infiltrating films of the copper-based MOF HKUST-1 with the conjugated organic molecule 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinododimethane created an air-stable material with conductivities as high as 7 siemens per meter. Infiltrating a metal-organic…
