New metal-free porous framework materials may have potential for hydrogen storage

Researchers from the University of Liverpool and the University of Southampton have developed metal-free porous framework materials using computational design methods. These materials, made from inexpensive and abundant non-metallic elements like chloride ions, show promise for applications in catalysis, water capture, and hydrogen storage. The approach utilizes non-metal anions as nodes to build frameworks, expanding the potential for discovering new materials. The findings could lead to advancements in various fields, particularly in creating more efficient and sustainable technologies.
