Characterization of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) by Gas Sorption
MOFs are crystalline solids with large pore volumes and high surface areas. As such,they are potential candidates for many applications including gas storage and separation, catalysis, and drug delivery, among others. Research and development professionals working with MOFs are always in search of ways to best characterize the available porosity of their material. Critical parameters that guide MOF design include surface area, pore size and pore volume, and uptake of gases at high pressures. This webinar will address how gas sorption can determine these important properties.
• Choice of adsorptive for MOF characterization
• Surface area, pore size and volume via gas adsorption
• Unique challenges of MOFs for data analysis
• High pressure gas sorption for storage and separation applications
In this webinar, you will learn the recommendations for the measurement of surface area, pore size, and pore volume for MOFs, including choice of adsorptive and state-of-the-art data reduction methods. In addition, high pressure sorption on MOFs will be discussed.
