Our clip-off chemistry article, just published in J. Am. Chem. Soc. is currently attracting broad attention in the chemistry and engineering field. It got highlighted on 31st of October in C&EN, in Chemistry Views, AZO Materials, and as well as Jacs spotlight
The paper "Postsynthetic Ligand Cleavage by Solid-Gas Phase Ozonolysis Fuses Micropores into Mesopores in Metal-Organic Frameworks" was published on 13 October 2018 in the Journal of the Americal Chemical Society. The related C&EN feature article by Neil Savage outlines the relevance and ingenuity of this research to boost the applicability of MOFs in catalysis, chemical sensing and drug delivery. Indeed, Prof. Omar M. Yaghi of the University of California, Berkeley, has called the work "elegant, clever, and a testament to the increasing utility of reticular chemistry" - the field responsible for MOFs.
Both lead author, Dr Vincent Guillerm, and NanoUp group leader Prof. Daniel Maspoch, are quoted in this review.
