Zeolites and metal organic frameworks have been shown to be capable of storage and delivery of nitric oxide. Both the adsorption capacities and rate of delivery have been discovered to be dependent on the framework topology and composition for both classes of materials. In addition, the amount of nitric oxide which zeolites can store/deliver is especially easy to alter by applying slight changes in the materials composition. Finally, at the present time zeolites are more acceptable on toxicological grounds than metal organic frameworks.
