Network Approaches to Highly Porous Materials Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), in which inorganic centers are bridged by organic linkers, can achieve very high porosity for gas absorption. However, as the materials develop larger void spaces, there is also more room for growing interpenetrating networks—filling the open spaces not with gas molecules but with more MOFs. Furukawa et al. (p. 424, published online 1 July) describe the synthesis of a MOF in which zinc centers are bridged with long…

Metal-adeninate vertices for the construction of an exceptionally porous metal-organic framework.

This work presents a promising alternative strategy for constructing mesoporous metal-organic frameworks that addresses the size of the vertex rather than the length of the organic linker, and uses large metal-biomolecule clusters, in particular zinc-adeninate building units, as vertices to construct bio-MOF-100, an exclusively mesoporus metal- organic framework.
