The pits in Pitt aren't the pits
One of the most porous materials ever made has been created by a team at the University of Pittsburgh. Nathaniel Rosi and colleagues have used the old "Tinker Toy" analogy to explain their new metal-organic frameworks, which could find applications in pharmaceutical delivery and high-density fuel gas storage. The team's materials follow the usual pattern and comprise metal-carboxylate cluster vertices and long, branched organic linkers, but it is their view on the vertices rather than the linkers that makes them special. They have worked with large metal-biomolecule clusters, such as zinc-adeninate building blocks, to construct "bio-MOF-100", which is a mesoporous MOF with the largest reported pore volume - of 4.3 cubic centimeters per gram.
