The discovery and science of MOF's

ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series

Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne

Do, 19.04.2018, 10:30 - 11:30

This talk will be about the chemistry of constructing new metal-organic frameworks and covalent organic frameworks from molecular building blocks, and their applications in clean energy (carbon dioxide capture and conversion to fuels). MOFs capable of harvesting water from low humidity desert air will also be described and their water uptake properties presented including a MOF device tested in the laboratory and Arizona desert.
