A new class of catalytic material has been studied by scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) display a unique three-dimensional structure that is highly selective and reactive, with performance that is up to 50 percent better than commercial materials in the tested reactions. The catalyst’s high shape selectivity—the ability to select certain molecules in the reaction based on structure—points to energy, environmental, and other applications for this new class of materials.
