Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and related materials are a class of crystalline nanoporous molecular scaffolds. MOFs possess excellent chemical and physical properties and can be assembled from a variety of metals and a large number of organic linkers to produce highly ordered, 3D structures. They possess:

  • Structural tailorability
  • Controlled porosity
  • High surface area
  • Abundant functional groups

MOFs are highly attractive for a range of industrial applications as they use non-hazardous feedstock, are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. They are potentially key materials in industrial adsorption, storage processes and catalysis. MOFs can be used to store, separate, release or protect in a range of applications including:

  • Gas storage and separation
  • Chemical separations
  • Catalysis
  • Batteries
  • Biomedicine

A number of start-ups are bringing MOF products to the market, and production volumes have increased in the past two years.
