Freeing 2D organic nanomaterials to do their thing
Large-scale approximate 2D structures – a piece of paper, for example – are not particularly exciting although they can be quite useful. A 2D material consisting of a single layer of atoms, though, is significant structurally and even more exceptional when it comes to its properties. The EU-funded EMOF project has developed a new paradigm to study one of the most interesting 3D organic nanomaterials of the last two decades, metal-organic frameworks, in 2D form on insulating substrates. The novel platform will minimise the interactions that cloud the issue when these materials are studied on metal substrates, enabling clear understanding and control of their electronic properties for a new generation of devices.
