Clockwise from top left: SEM images of a cross-section of titanium carbide precursor, after etching with chlorine gas for 0.25h, 0.75h, and 1.5h. Notice the shrinking core of metal carbide as the particle is etched fully into a porous carbon (bottom left image).
Understanding chemical and water stability of metal-organic frameworks
The stability of metal-organic frameworks in the presence of humidity or corrosive environments can be a determining factor in using MOFs in applications. Learn more about research in the Walton Group that seeks to solve these issues.
