Designed "molecular trap" for formaldehyde

Cage molecule acts as a "molecular prison" to capture and trap formaldehyde molecules. Each cage molecule can capture 9 formaledhyde molecules, which is 500 times higher than that captured by activated carbon, the most commonly used material for formaldehyde removal.

Customisable cages for different pollutants

Based on the same mechanism, by tuning the size or functionality of the cage molecules, we can develop new materials that capture/detect other emerging indoor pollutants, such as radon (causing lung cancer) or acetaldehyde (one main toxin in smoking).
