Ionic conductivity of metal-organic frameworks

Metal−organic frameworks (MOFs) are an intriguing class of crystalline materials that can be readily assembled by combining metal ions (components of nodes) and multitopic organic ligands (structural linkers) via coordination chemistry, typically under solvothermal reaction conditions. Often characterized by large internal surface areas and extended nanoscale porosity, MOFs are being examined as candidate materials for applications in chemical separations, gas storage, heterogeneous catalysis, sensing, ion exchange, and drug delivery.
