An international team of specialists from Germany, Belgium and Russia has synthesized a new type of organometallic material based on cobalt that changes its structure. Scientists have explored a new compound that can change its structure.
According to the experiments, the cobalt-based organometallic polymer framework is capable of selectively absorbing other compounds. For example, it will not absorb methane and nitrogen into its pores. Material also decomposes more slowly in the air, that’s why it stays in a stable open state longer.
In the future the researchers plan to study the influence and dependence of the properties of the new compound on external factors (pressure, heating and interaction with other molecules), whereby the synthesis of organometallic frameworks with predetermined properties will be possible.
