Recently, a new advance has been made in the preparation and functional development of silver cluster-based metal-organic frameworks by the team of crystalline molecular functional materials innovation. The team is led by Professor Shuangquan Zang from Green Catalysis Research Center of School of Chemistry, Zhengzhou University. The paper, titled “Ligand engineering to achieve enhanced ratiometric oxygen sensing in a silver cluster-based metal-organic framework”, has been published in the comprehensive top international journalNature Communications. Dr. Xiyan Dong and Dr. Yubing Si are the first authors, and Professor Shuangquan Zang is the exclusive corresponding author. Zhengzhou University is listed as the first among the authors’ working institutions.
