F364 (2016). Synthesis and formation mechanism of textured MOF-5.

Textured and house-of-card structures develop on the surfaces of cubic MOF-5 crystals. The formation mechanisms of these novel constructions are investigated based on characterization of the intermediate specimens with different reaction time intervals using SEM and TEM. It is found that the growth of MOF-5 cubic crystals does not follow the classical route. [H. F. Greer, Y. H. Liu, A. Greenaway, P. A. Wright, W. Z.
