"Chemical Equation Presented" "Hard work today leads to success tomorrow" can be said for research on membranes of porous crystalline materials, which are ideal for size- and shape-selective separations with low energetic effort. The realization of the first metalorganic framework membranes may open up a plethora of applications, including functional coatings. The picture shows the separation of H2 and CO2 by a membrane on an alumina support.
