It's time for application: Chromium terephthalate MIL-101, a metal–organic framework (MOF) with coordinatively unsaturated sites, was utilized as the stationary phase to fabricate the first MOF-coated capillary column for high-resolution gas-chromatographic separation of xylene isomers and ethylbenzene with excellent selectivity.
