Abstract

original image

Crystal extractor: Heterostructured porous coordination polymer crystals fabricated using epitaxial growth have two contradictory porous functions, namely size selectivity and high storage. The crystals not only extract linear petroleum molecules from a mixture with its branched isomer, even at very low concentrations of linear isomer (1 wt %), but also shows improved accumulation of the molecules in its pores.
