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.
