Researchers Discover Previously Unknown Structure of ZIF-8 Metal-Organic Framework Compound

Researchers Discover Previously Unknown Structure of ZIF-8 Metal-Organic Framework Compound

It is beyond imagination that one gram of a substance could have a surface area nearly as large as a soccer field. This, however, is true for compounds known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). In the near future, MOFs are expected to be used for absorption and reliable storage of large volumes of gases (like hydrogen or carbon dioxide) or for separate gas mixtures. [More]
