Adding a polymer stabilizes collapsing metal-organic frameworks

www.sciencedaily.com

Porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have many applications like carbon capture and water-cleaning. However, MOFs with large pores tend to collapse. Chemists and chemical engineers have now solved the problem by adding small amounts of a polymer into the MOF pores, an act that impedes pore collapse.
