Materials: Supercapacitor made from MOF

Researchers have built a high-capacity energy-storage device using a metal–organic framework (MOF) — a porous material with many desirable properties.MOFs are networks of metal ions linked together by organic molecules, and their large surface area means they hold promise as energy-storing supercapacitors.
