Space division with red cubes: Doping metal-organic frameworks with another metal component gives a further opportunity to tune their properties. Recent work successfully introduced europium into the inorganic nodes of frameworks. Although the doping element does not affect the framework topology, highly improved emissive performance was measured thanks to the intrinsic red emission of europium.
