Our new work "An Imine-Linked Metal-Organic Framework as a Reactive Oxygen Species Generator" was accepted by Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. In this article, we reported the synthesis of a MOF using a COF method, and showed that it can generate ROS thanks to its redox-active and photo-active functions. This is a collaboration with Prof. Tao Yi at Donghua University, and Xiaomin Li is the first author.
"Anisotropic Reticular Chemistry" was published in Nat. Rev. Mater. This is a joint piece contributed by Prof. Omar Yaghi (UC Berkeley), Prof. Yue-biao Zhang (ShanghaiTech), Prof. Hexiang Deng (Wuhan U.), and me together. This work was also featured on the cover of the October Issue of the journal.
