Project description

Metal Organic Frameworks are a new generation of mesoporous materials with applications for energy storage, gas separation, catalysis. The are characterized by giant pores (2 - 50nm) the aim of this project is the synthesis, characterization and modeling of a new generation of MOFs with catalytic applications. Despite their exceptional properties, the applications in catalysis are still rather limited.
