Research Topic

Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) materials in microfluidic systems

Abstract

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have important applications in chemical storage, separation and reaction. MOF synthesis and shaping will be investigated in-situ under flow conditions in microfluidic reactor with the aim of unraveling the formation mechanisms and kinetics to enable a better control on their shaping and incorporation as adsorbent, membrane and catalyst in the microfabricated separator and reactor. Operando spectroscopic methods will be used to observe the molecular processes during adsorption, separation and reaction on the functional MOF elements in the microfluidic system.
