2010_24/2010Nanoscale Metal–Organic Frameworks: MRI Contrast Agents and BeyondMetals@MOFs – Loading MOFs with Metal Nanoparticles for Hybrid FunctionsConstruction of Three-Dimensional Uranyl–Organic Frameworks with Benzenetricarboxylate LigandsSilica–MOF Composites as a Stationary Phase in Liquid Chromatography (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 24/2010)

The cover picture a schematic design of a porous metal–organic framework as the background. Embedded in the MOF are illustrations representing some of the thought-provoking contributions that make up this Cluster Issue entitled “Targeted Fabrication of MOFs for Hybrid Functionality”. With a focus towards application, this issue serves to showcase the research at the forefront of the field. The top left-hand graphic symbolises the use of nanoscale MOFs as MRI contrast agents (W. Lin et al.; p. 3725 ff), while the bottom left depicts the use of MOFs as supports for metal nanoparticles in catalysis (R. A. Fischer et al.; p. 3701 ff). The structure–property relationship of uranyl–organic frameworks (top right-hand corner), important in photovoltaics is highlighted by J.-S. Chen et al. (p. 3780 ff), and the synthesis of MOF composites for use as a stationary phase in HPLC (bottom right-hand corner) is discussed by D. E. De Vos et al. (p. 3735 ff). A sincere thanks to the authors for their excellent contributions to the cover. We thank Heulwen Price for designing the background.
