Breakthrough in Nanotechnology: New Method to Synthesize Amorphous Metal-Organic Frameworks and Coordination Polymers

- EN - DE

Innovative research approach enables the development of new materials and applications in technology and medicine.

Researchers at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, led Nicola Pinna, have made a groundbreaking advancement in nanotechnology, successfully extending the well-known Stöber method to synthesize amorphous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and coordination polymers (CPs). This innovative approach is set to significantly enhance the functionality and complexity of colloidal materials, paving the way for new applications in technology and medicine.

The Stöber method, traditionally used for creating amorphous glass-like colloids, has been a cornerstone in material science. However, its application has been limited to a narrow range of material systems. ...
