Discovery, development, and functionalization of Zr(IV)-based metal–organic frameworks
This highlight focuses on the discovery and functionalization of Zr(IV)-based metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). These relatively stable materials have been investigated for a variety of applications including catalysis, photochemical reactions, and molecular separations. The synthesis and modification of these frameworks are discussed along with their unique properties and potential technological utility.
