(Figure Presented) Supersized pores: A new mesoporous metal-organic framework that is mainly composed of Tb3+ ions and tripodal carboxylate ligands has cages of 3.9 and 4.7 nm in diameter (see picture). The evacuated framework is robust and can accommodate gases or ferrocene molecules, as verified by gas-sorption measurements and luminescence studies.
