How you think about metal-organic frameworks, better known as MOFs, all depends on your perspective. A MOF’s capacity for carbon capture is governed both by what’s there—a beautiful chemical architecture—and what’s not—a wide-open network of CO2-sized pores. In “MOFiosos,” Zoey Herm explores the complex human dynamics behind this complex material. From basic science to applied technology, experimental to computational, thinking fast to thinking slow, every MOF researcher at UC Berkeley seems to have a different approach to the same collaborative projects. What’s your perspective?
