Vanadium, where are you now? Doping the highly stable metal–organic framework (MOF) MIL-53(Al) with vanadium ions provides an interesting system to study the breathing behavior of MOFs. Electron paramagnetic resonance and electron–nuclear double resonance spectroscopy are used to verify the incorporation of vanadium ions in the as-synthesized MIL-53 framework (see picture).
