|Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) Based on Chromium Quadruply Bonded Oxalates||
Our research interests involve the preparation of metal organic framework (MOF) type materials based on metal oxalate compounds having the empirical formula MC2O4, where M = Cr2+ and Mo2+ ions. Metal-metal bonded ions of a number of transition metals (Cr, Mo, W, Re, Rh, and Cu) are know to form an extensive series of diamagnetic compounds having strong metal-metal bonding interactions. It is now well accepted that these interactions represent...
