Metal Organic Frameworks MOFs

Metal Organic Frameworks

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are hybrid crystalline materials that consist in metal nodes coordinated by multidentate organic linkers. In these works different classes of MOFs have been studied. Perfluorinated MOFs have been evaluated for their selectivity features. Chiral MOFs have been used to study enantiomers separation and Ni-Fe and Zn MOFs have been compared in structure stability.
