Here we highlight a paper by researchers at the Material Engineering Division of Toyota Motor Europe and the University of Crete who used CCDC’s metal-organic framework (MOF) collection to investigate how ligand functionalization affects the hydrogen storage profile of MOFs. This is part of our series highlighting examples of the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) tools in action by scientists around the world.
To welcome the release of our CSD MOF collection, 10,636 structures available for free for academic research, we are answering some common questions on MOFs with the help of some of our team and collaborators.
The past year has pushed the importance and challenges of scientific discovery into the spotlight. What lessons can we learn, and what changes can scientific leaders make going forward? In a virtual "fireside chat" the leaders of the CCDC and the RCSB PDB explored this topic, and we share some key learnings from the discussion here.
The recent cover of Chemical Science (issue 32) showcased a paper by Moghadam et al. highlighting our new approach to classifying MOF structures for better searching and high-throughput screening.
