According to NIST, institute researchers Taner Yildirim and Michael Hartman studied the hydrogen storage capabilities of a custom-made metal-organic framework (MOF) material known as MOF5, observing the unexpected formation of a "three-dimensional network of 'nanocages' that appears to form after other sites load up with hydrogen.
In recent years, research targeting the synthesis of open or channel-containing metal-organic frameworks has interested chemists as such materials have found application in areas like gas absorbtion, size-selective separation, and heterogeneous catalysis.
