What is it about?

MOFs are often, somewhat unfairly, derided for poor stability in the presence of water. We present a new strategy for making MOFs that are stable in boiling water and able to adsorb carbon dioxide in a humid environment. By using organic ligands that have a remarkably high degree of connectivity, i.e. are attached to a large number of metal nodes, we have generated a very stable material and propose this as a potential general route for obtaining stability in aqueous environments.
