In a paper published in National Science Review, dual-ligand and hard-soft-acid-base strategies were used to fabricate morphology-controllable 3D pillared-layer MOF nanocrystals (1D nanofibers, 2D nanosheets, and 3D aggregates) with stable electrochemical cycling performance by adjusting the concentration of 4,4’-bipyridine to control the direction of crystal growth.

Researchers are developing a new technology that uses hand gestures to carry out commands on computers.
Drugs we take like prednisone can weaken our bones and so can aging, and scientists working to prevent both have some of the first evidence that the best target may not be the logical one.
