51_05c/2012Inside Back Cover: Remarkable Adsorption Capacity of CuCl2-Loaded Porous Vanadium Benzenedicarboxylate for Benzothiophene (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 5/2012)

Metal–organic frameworks loaded with cupric chloride have been applied for adsorptive desulfurization. In their Communication on page 1198 ff., S. H. Jhung and N. A. Khan report the remarkable adsorptive performance of CuCl2/V–benzenedicarboxylate (V-BDC) arising from the facile reduction of CuII to CuI by VIII in V-BDC. This approach provides new insights into redox reactions in metal–organic framework materials and can find application in the adsorptive desulfurization of liquid fuels.
