8_01/2012Nanocomposites: Highly Luminescent Metal–Organic Frameworks Through Quantum Dot Doping (Small 1/2012)

The cover image features the synergic combination of ultraporous crystals with functional nanoparticles for the fabrication of smart devices. With a one-pot approach, quantum dots are embedded in the framework crystal without affecting the properties of the luminescent particles. The final framework composite represents a new class of ultraporous luminescent materials that has been tested as a molecular sieve sensor. For more information, please read the Full Paper “Highly Luminescent Metal-Organic Frameworks Through Quantum Dot Doping” by D. Buso, P. Falcaro, and co-workers, beginning on page 80.
