MIL-53 Metal Organic Framework


model 4-9:

model 9:

MIL-53(Sc) (Materials of Institut Lavoisier) is a metal organic framework (MOF) made up of scandium and oxygen (ScO6) with 1,4-benzodicarboxylic acid between the nodes.
This is a flexible MOF which changes pore size and shape upon heating and adsorption of CO2. The structures were calculated using DFT.
