Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are sponge-like organic-inorganic hybrid materials and have a variety of uses due to their ultra-high ‘porosity,’ or the ratio of pores or air pockets to the solid material. Through a technique called ‘post-synthetic modification,’ Professor Jinhee Park and her research team were able to enhance and modify the function of these materials for specific purposes.
