Faculty/Staff Detail

David Collins, Chemistry Department, had his article published in the February issue of Crystal Growth & Design. “Construction of Metal-Organic Frameworks with 1D Chain, 2D Grid, and 3D Porous Framework Based on a Flexible Imidazole Ligand and Rigid Benzenedicarboxylates” describes a flexible molecule that, depending on the solvent used, can adopt two different shapes to link metal atoms. The molecule is then used to generate a 3D molecular grid. The article can be viewed online.
