Gefräßige Mikroporen: Die Reaktion von [Zn43-OH)2(L)4(tBu)2] (LH=8-Hydroxychinolin) mit CO2 liefert einen Festkörper mit 3D-Mikroporenstruktur, in dem sphärische Zinkcarbonat-Nanocluster diamantartig gepackt sind. Die Verbindung verfügt über eine der größten Brunauer-Emmett-Teller-Oberflächen unter nichtkovalenten porösen Materialien und kann große Mengen an H2, CO2 und CH4 aufnehmen.
