We welcome Tang! International mobility became active!!

We are happy to welcome Phitchayapha Phattharaphuti, for short "Tang", to the Furukawa group as a MEXT scholar research student!! Tang was supposed to join the group in April but her arrival was delayed due to the pandemic situation. Finally, Tang was able to get a visa and reach Kyoto after two weeks of quarantine…

[Paper] Nano Res.

We finally published the research related to our old finding of shape-memory porosity when the flexible MOF crystal was being downsized. This time we correlated such phenomena with the crystal morphology. In this manuscript, we used the solid-state molecular diffusion technique to regulate the position of pillar linkers in an individual MOF nanocrystal, in which…

[Review] Chem. Commun.

We summarized the recent progress of porous materials for gas biology and therapeutic applications!! Gas phase signaling molecules, so-called gasotransmitters such as nitric oxide, carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide, are known to regulate intercellular communications. Porous materials are excellent hosts for these gas molecules to control their storage and release. We focused on synthetic porous…
