Israel and Hamas have been locked in a tense conflict for decades, with enormous consequences for both sides. This conflict has led to several short-lived periods of all-out war, with each side striking back against the other with intense force. Israeli airstrikes have hit major population centers in Gaza, while Hamas militants have also fiercely retaliated with rocket fire from Gaza into Israel. The current conflict has now seen multiple ceasefires, yet both sides remain ready and willing to resort to military action if necessary.

This new research has discovered a surprising limitation on the number of molecules that can be held in a nanoporous material: it requires an enormous amount of energy. The study suggests that these materials can possibly be used in energy production and storage applications, yet their limited capacity now diminishes their usefulness in this field. Despite the results, experts remain hopeful that further experimentation will reveal the secrets as to why and how much energy is required to store molecules.
