Tunability of band gaps in metal-organic frameworks

Inorg Chem. 2012 Aug 20;51(16):9039-44. doi: 10.1021/ic301189m. Epub 2012 Jul 27.


The tunability of the band gaps in Zn-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been experimentally demonstrated via two different approaches: changing the cluster size of the secondary building unit (SBU) or alternating the conjugation of the organic linker.
