23_34/2011Magnetic Materials: Dynamic Control of MOF-5 Crystal Positioning Using a Magnetic Field (Adv. Mater. 34/2011)

Controlling the position of metal organic frameworks is essential for the fabrication of devices that exploit the hybrid porous crystal properties. On page 3901, Paolo Falcaro, Dario Buso, and co-workers report the preparation of framework composites based on MOF-5 and carbon-coated cobalt nanoparticles, producing a highly porous powder that responds to magnetic stimuli. The framework composites can be impregnated with optically responsive molecules and used as a position-controlled molecular sensor.
