Metal-organic frameworks are hybrids of organic ligands as connectors and metal oxides as the joints all held together by strong chemical bonds, or molecular scaffolds. The crystalline structures have no internal walls and are essentially porous and light, yet strong and rigid. MOFs have some of the largest recorded surface areas and pore volumes. The use of organic linkers also presents the potential for the design of different functional groups, which would allow for many different applications. [3rd Award]-[Peer Assessment Review]
