Highlights from themed issues covering metal–organic frameworks

metal-organic frameworks imageThe exciting chemistry of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) attracts interest from a range of communities within the materials and chemical sciences. Recently the Journal of Materials Chemistry published a themed issue ‘Integrating functionality into metal–organic frameworks’ and Dalton Transactions ‘Coordination chemistry in the solid state’.

You can see the full issues by clicking on the links above, alternatively you can browse the highlights below, which are free to download until the 27th July.
