New material captures carbon dioxide

A new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules and efficiently convert them into useful organic materials has been developed by researchers at Kyoto University, along with colleagues at the University ...

What doesn't crack them makes them stronger

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, according to philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Who would have thought that a similar notion might apply to materials?

Nanoporous material nets contaminant from water

Barely visible material that looks like tiny grains of sand may hold the key to removing an invisible health threat that has contaminated water supplies across the country. Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory ...

Real-time analysis of MOF adsorption behavior

Researchers have developed a technology to analyze the adsorption behavior of molecules in each individual pore of a metal organic framework (MOF). This system has large specific surface areas, allowing for the real-time ...

New molecular sieves

An international team of researchers recently synthesized polyarylether-based covalent organic frameworks, the most stable crystalline porous material on record. The team, which includes the University of Delaware's Yushan ...

Specific ion effects directed noble metal aerogels

Noble metal foams (NMFs) are a new class of functional materials that contain both noble metals and monolithic porous materials for impressive multi prospects in materials science and multidisciplinary fields. In a recent ...

MOFs can sense and sort troublesome gases

From astronauts and submariners to miners and rescue workers, people who operate in small, enclosed spaces need good air quality to work safely and effectively. Electronic sensors now developed by a KAUST team can simultaneously ...
