MOF material offers selective, reversible and repeatable capture of toxic atmospheric gas

Scientists have developed a metal-organic framework material with a selective, fully reversible and repeatable capability to remove atmospheric nitrogen dioxide gas in ambient conditions. The discovery, confirmed by researchers using neutron scattering, could facilitate air filtration technologies that capture and convert targeted gases, including carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, for long-term sequestration to mitigate air pollution and global warming.
