Now in Advanced Materials, researchers from across Germany and the Czech Republic have developed a simple procedure to synthesize composites based on metal-organic porous gels (MOGs), in order to have quick uptake of oils and high stabilities in water and other organic solvents.
So what are MOGs?
MOGs are 3D networks of metal-organic framework structures that exhibit high surface areas and tunable soft porosities. In addition, they have inherent structural retention, low densities, and can absorb molecules within their structure.
