Water filtration breakthrough using metal-organic frameworks

Source: Science Daily

With two billion people worldwide lacking access to clean and safe drinking water, new research may offer a breakthrough solution. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), a next-generation material with the largest internal surface area of any known substance, can be used to capture, store and release chemical compounds — in this case, the salt and ions in sea water.
