2011_11/2011Enthalpy–Entropy Correlation for Hydrogen Adsorption on MOFs: Variable-Temperature FTIR Study of Hydrogen Adsorption on MIL-100(Cr) and MIL-101(Cr) (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 11/2011)

The cover picture shows an allegoric representation of the dawning hopes of a hydrogen energy transition, which would alleviate the foreseeable shortage of fossil fuels for the transportation sector. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), represented by the honeycomb structure, have become a main focus in the current search for economically viable materials for hydrogen storage and delivery. The signpost at the left of the picture is a reminder that thermodynamics of the hydrogen uptake and delivery process is ruled by the corresponding enthalpy and entropy changes, which are shown to be interrelated. Both of these thermodynamic quantities have to be taken into account for intelligent design of hydrogen storage materials. Details are discussed in the article by C. O. Areán et al. on p. 1703 ff.
