Building next gen smart materials with the power of sound

Researchers have used sound waves to precisely manipulate atoms and molecules, accelerating the sustainable production of breakthrough smart materials. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are versatile and porous nanomaterials that can be used to store, separate, release or protect almost anything, but the traditional process for creating them is environmentally unsustainable and time-consuming. Scientists have now demonstrated a clean, green technique that can produce a customized MOF in minutes, by harnessing the power of sound.
