Among their many meaningful uses, metal–organic frameworks, or simply MOFs, hold the promise of expanding the fuel capacity of hydrogen–fueled vehicles with the ability to compress hydrogen molecules into small areas. Building on this technology, MOFs could increase this capacity even further to the point where fuel–cell–powered cars can one day become a reality.
The first, and definitive, reference on MOF chemistry, Metal–Organic Frameworks looks at the scientific possibilities inherent in these crystalline compounds with an in–depth view of how their chemical properties enable them to maximize surface areas with scaffolds made up of linked rods. Metal–Organic Frameworks covers the essential MOF fundamentals and discusses their key benefits, such as how they can be made with simple and low–cost building units to afford technologically advanced molecular and supramolecular materials. This book:
- Uncovers rational design strategies, particularly in connection with self–assembly and supramolecular chemistry
- Describes pore surface engineering and decoration
- Outlines emerging applications to separations and gas storage
- Discusses how the fields of nanotechnology and green chemistry are contributing to MOF studies
Metal–Organic Frameworks collects input from leading authorities in MOF chemistry and details important and timely contributions. Comprehensive coverage offers the reader a thorough and reliable view of the groundbreaking discoveries and forward–thinking research defining how far this field has come and how far it still has to go. Suitable to gain an advanced–level understanding in this area, this book also serves as a valuable teaching tool, making it an ideal addition to the classroom.
