What are MOFs?
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are one of the fastest-growing classes of materials prepared by the self-assembly of metal ions or clusters with organic ligands. Different from other porous solids such as zeolites, silica, or activated carbon, MOFs are unique due to their high porosity, low density, and high structural tunability. By changing the metal site and/or the organic ligand, different structures with a variety of properties can be achieved. MOFs have been employed for a wide variety of applications in areas such as gas capture and separation, catalysis, sensing, textile upgrading, humidity control, drug delivery, among others.
What we do
The selection of a particular MOF is application-oriented, with each MOF being suitable for a certain operation. To date, there are thousands of MOF structures reported in the literature, including those prepared by us, e.g. the HL1 lanthanide-based MOF family. Other common MOFs are HKUST-1, ZIF-8, UiO-66, MIL-125, Al-PMOF, etc.
We will evaluate customers’ applications, synthesize and test the right MOF(s), and scale up the production for your needs.
