Introduction to Metal Organic Frameworks and their functionalities - Christian Serre - Jeudi 18 janvier 2018 à 16 h 30

Metal Organic Frameworks are one of the latest class of ordered porous solids. Due to their versatile hybrid character (composition, structure, pore size/shape), these fascinating solids have been proposed to date for a wide range of potential applications. We will report first an introduction to MOFs including a description of their main features as well as their synthesis conditions. This will be followed by a few representative examples of MOFs potential applications (health, energy, environment). The talk will be concluded by a brief overview of their production and use at the industrial scale.
