It is stable and recyclable: a team of scientists from Jacobs University led by Ulrich Kortz, Professor of Chemistry, has developed a new class of materials in close cooperation with researchers from the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the Technical University of Munich. The compound based on the precious metal palladium paves the way for the full use of the entire class of discrete polyoxopalladates (POPs) as building blocks for 3D framework materials (MOFs). The project was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The name of the new class of materials: POP-MOF, JUB-1.
