Abstract

original image

A straightforward method for significantly improving the moisture resistance of metalorganic frameworks (MOFs) is described on page 4010 by Seung Jae Yang and Chong Rae Park. In the proposed method, MOFs are subjected to thermal treatment, inducing the formation of an amorphous carbon coating on the MOF surfaces that prevents hydrolysis. This approach should open up new practical applications for MOFs in areas hitherto unexplored due to concerns regarding moisture sensitivity.
