RESTRAIN

The groundbreaking work that led to the emergence of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) represents a major milestone in the design of materials with controlled atomic or molecular architectures. MOFs are organic-inorganic crystalline materials; they have attracted particular attention owing to their tremendously high surface area and tunable pore size, properties that…
