RECENT ADVANCES IN THE STUDY OF MESOPOROUS METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), which consist of metal ions or clusters and organic bridging ligands, have recently emerged as an important family of porous materials. In this comment, we discuss the current state of the field pertaining to MOFs with pore sizes between 2 and 50 nm, which have great application potential in gas storage, separation, sensor, catalysis, and drug delivery. This review will cover mesoporous MOFs containing 3-D channels, 1-D channels, and large cavities, as well as those based on supramolecular templates. Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
