The Makeup of MOFs

Using the largest NMR magnet in the world, researchers found new details on the structure of metal organic frameworks, work that could change how drugs are delivered or data is stored in the future.

The α-Mg3(HCOO)6 metal-organic framework that contains twelve unique oxygen sites.

Boost for Spin Liquid Candidate

The case that ruthenium trichloride is a quantum spin liquid just got stronger, making it a possible building block for future quantum computers.

Scientists working at the National MagLab have found evidence of a quantum spin liquid in ruthenium trichloride (RuCl3).
