New paper published: Selective ammonia sensing using fluorescent metal organic frameworks

In a paper recently published in Journal of the American Chemical Society (Selective Turn-On Ammonia Sensing Enabled by High-Temperature Fluorescence in Metal–Organic Frameworks with Open Metal Sites), we show that highly fluorescent metal organic frameworks (MOFs) can be used to selectively sense ammonia at high temperatures. The work is lead by Mircea Dincă (Dincă group), professor at the MIT Chemistry Department. This has been a fun and interesting collaboration, which I’d like to pursue in the future.
