Separating molecules by their shapes can purify natural gas

Sheng Zhou, Mohamed Eddaoudi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Membranes made from metal–organic frameworks contain modular pores that can separate mixtures of gas. By changing the shape of these pores to improve molecular separation, we produced a membrane that could remove nitrogen and carbon dioxide from natural gas in an energy-efficient and cost-effective way.
