Metal-organic frameworks: Structural characterization for surface area, pore size and high-pressure gas storage

Metal-organic frameworks: Structural characterization for surface area, pore size and high-pressure gas storage

Description:

Potential applications for metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) span the range from gas storage and separation to catalysis, sensing, and drug delivery. In order to understand their behavior in these applications, the porosity of these highly porous materials must be characterized. Gas sorption is a suitable tool to understand the surface area, pore size and volume, and uptake of gases at high pressures on these valuable materials.

Key insights:

  • Choice of adsorptive for MOF characterization
  • Challenges in BET area measurement of microporous materials
  • State-of-the-art pore size calculation methods for MOFs
  • Unique challenges of MOFs for data analysis
  • High pressure gas sorption for storage and separation applications

In this webinar, critical parameters such as the choice of adsorptive gas for characterization and pore size analysis methods will be discussed. High pressure sorption for understanding gas storage and separation properties as well as the unique challenges that MOFs also pose for physisorption will be presented.
