Abstract

In April 2017, collaborators from the University of California, Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reported the successful design of the prototype of a device that used sunlight to harvest moisture from the air 1 . Listed as one of the year’s top ten emerging technologies by the World Economic Forum 2 , this prototype is just one of many applications of a new class of designer crystals (materials with pre- determined structures and properties) called metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
