The February issue includes content on: metal-organic materials, assessment, acid–base chemistry, game-based approach to teaching, chemical structure and properties, luminescence, inquiry-based teaching, nanochemistry, synthesis, and computational chemistry. This latest issue of JCE plus the content of all past issues, volumes 1 through 92, are available at .

Cover: Metal-Organic Frameworks

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are fascinating new materials with multiple chemical, industrial, and environmental applications. In , Smith, Angle, and Northrop describe the straightforward growth of single-crystalline cyclodextrin-based MOFs (CD–MOFs), along with quantitative and qualitative methods for observing their adsorption of CO2(g).

MOFs are also are explored in by Johanna L. Crane, Kelly E. Anderson, and Samantha G. Conway.
