A Rod-Packing Hydrogen-Bonded Organic Framework with Suitable Pore Confinement for Benchmark Ethane/Ethylene Separation

April 26, 2021
Xu Zhang, Jia-Xin Wang, Libo Li, Jiyan Pei, Rajamani Krishna, Hui Wu, Wei Zhou, Guodong Qian, Bin Li, Banglin Chen
The discovery of new materials for separating ethane (C2H6) from ethylene (C2H4) by adsorption is a critical enterprise in the chemical industry. It still remains as a daunting challenge to target both high C2H6 adsorption capacity and gas selectivity in a

Robust Biological Hydrogen-Bonded Organic Framework with Post-Functionalized Rhenium(I) Sites for Efficient Heterogeneous Visible Light-Driven CO 2 Reduction

April 12, 2021
Baoqiu Yu, Lianjie Li, Shanshan Liu, Hailong Wang, Heyuan Liu, Chenxiang Lin, Chao Liu, Hui Wu, Wei Zhou, Xiyou Li, Tianyu Wang, Banglin Chen, Jianzhuang Jiang
A robust 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy)-derived biological hydrogenbonded framework (HOF-25) has been realized depending on guanine-quadruplex with the assistance of π-π interaction, which reacts with Re(CO)5Cl to give a post-functionalized HOF-25-Re. Xray

Effect of H 2 O Molecules on Thermal Expansion of TiCo(CN) 6

October 19, 2020
Qilong Gao, Xinwei Shi, Alessandro Venier, Qingzhen Huang, Hui Wu, Jun Chen, Andrea Sanson, Erjun Liang
The understanding of the role of guest molecules in the lattice void of open-framework structures is vital for thermal expansion tailoring. Here, we take a new NTE compound, TiCo(CN)6 as a case study from the local structure perspective to investigate the

Porous Organic Cages as Synthetic Water Channels

October 1, 2020
Yi D. Yuan, Jinqiao Dong, Jie Liu, Daohui Zhao, Hui Wu, Wei Zhou, Hui X. Gan, Yen W. Tong, Jianwen Jiang, Dan Zhao
Nature has protein channels (e.g., aquaporins) that preferentially transport water molecules while rejecting even the smallest hydrated ions. Aspirations to create robust synthetic counterparts have led to the development of a few one-dimensional (1D)

Structural and Dynamical Properties of Potassium Dodecahydro-Monocarba-Closo-Dodecaborate: KCB 11 H 12

August 20, 2020
Mirjana Dimitrievska, Hui Wu, Vitalie Stavila, Olga A. Babanova, Roman V. Skoryunov, Alexei V. Soloninin, Wei Zhou, Benjamin Trump
MCB11H12 (M: Li, Na) dodecahydro-monocarba-closo-dodecaborate salt compounds are known to have stellar superionic Li+ and Na+ conductivities in their high-temperature disordered phases, making them potentially appealing electrolytes in all-solid-state

Reversible Switching between Nonporous and Porous Phases of a New SIFSIX Coordination Network Induced by a Flexible Linker Ligand

April 15, 2020
Bai-Qiao Song, Qing-Yuan Yang, Shi-Qiang Wang, Matthias Vandichel, Amrit Kumar, Clare Crowley, Naveen Kumar, Cheng-Hua Deng, Victoria GasconPerez, Matteo Lusi, Hui Wu, Wei Zhou, Michael J. Zaworotko
Closed-to-open structural transformations in flexible coordination networks are of interest for their potential utility in gas storage and separation. Herein, we report the first example of a flexible SiF62--pillared square grid material, [Cu(SiF6)(L)2]n

Metallo-N-Heterocycles - A New Family of Hydrogen Storage Material

April 1, 2020
Khai Chen Tan, Yang Yu, Ruting Chen, Teng He, Zijun Jing, Qijun Pei, Jintao Wang, Yong Shen Chua, Anan Wu, Wei Zhou, Hui Wu, Ping Chen
Storing hydrogen efficiently in condensed material under mild conditions is a key technique challenge. Here, we developed a new family of hydrogen storage material spanning across the domain of inorganic and organic hydrides, namely metalorganic hydrides

Large Enhancement of Magnetocaloric and Barocaloric Effects by Hydrostatic Pressure in La(Fe 0.92 Co 0.08 ) 11.9 Si 1.1 with a NaZn 13 -Type Structure
