Title: Acetylene Storage; NCNR
Description: This closeup image of the HKUST-1 metal-organic framework (MOF), recently obtained by NIST scientists, reveals that copper atoms (green) are exposed to the open air within the MOF's lattice-like structure. The exposed copper allows the MOF to safely store acetylene (magenta) at up to 100 times current capabilities.
