Brolly good MOFs: A new series of hydrophobic isoreticular porous Zr oxide dicarboxylate MOFs have been prepared (see picture, Zr blue polyhedra, O red, C black). They have a one-dimensional pore system, a rare combination of Lewis acidity and hydrophobic character, and a higher hydrothermal and mechanical stability than their UiO MOF polymorph counterparts.
