Dramatically different conductivity properties of metal-organic framework polymorphs of Tl(TCNQ): an unexpected room-temperature crystal-to-crystal phase transition. Academic Article uri icon


  • Just add water: Tl(TCNQ) polymorphs with very different charge-transport properties have been isolated, one of which undergoes a remarkable crystal-to-crystal phase transition to the second phase when exposed to ambient water vapor (see picture; TCNQ=tetracyanoquinodimethane).
