Utilization of metal-organic frameworks for gas separations and catalytic oxidation
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and their applications have been a rapidly growing area of research in recent years. The seemingly endless combinations of metal ions or clusters with various possible organic linkers, along with the methods of post-synthesis modification, has resulted in approximately 20,000 different MOFs to date. With such potential for variation, MOFs have shown to be useful in a whole host of applications. One such application of MOFs is the separation of natural gas. Currently, these separations require expensive methods, such as amine absorptions and cryogenic distillation. ...
