The article published in JACS by Pepe Giner et al. in which the international team reports a MOF (metal-organic framework) that can separate biobutanol from the biomass fermentation products has received much attention in the American media, since there is a high demand for gasoline, and one of the research collaborators was from Oregon State University.
The paper even reached the American TV "NBC16" KMTR Virtual Channel with the headline "Researchers at OSU make key breakthrough in search for gasoline replacement" (30 April 2020) as you can see in this video:
