23_09/2013Magnetic Nanoparticles: Magnetic Cores with Porous Coatings: Growth of Metal-Organic Frameworks on Particles Using Liquid Phase Epitaxy (Adv. Funct. Mater. 9/2013)

Nanoparticles with a magnetic core are coated with highly porous metal organic frameworks (MOFs) using liquid phase epitaxy. As demonstrated using X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Brunauer–Emmitt–Teller (BET) analysis, a well-defined number of layers is deposited. On page 1210, Christof Wöll and co-workers report that such magnetic MOF particles can be used for catalysis, as chromatographic media, and for the fabrication of core/shell/shell particles.
