TOPIQ | Crystalline Sponge Method

The Crystalline Sponge method is an option to obtain structural information for compounds that are otherwise inaccessible to common crystallographic approaches because they are of low availability, liquids or gases at room temperature. Such sponges are porous crystalline metal organic frameworks that can absorb and orient organic molecules in their defined pores. An introduction to the method is given including a structure refinement using Olex².
