Providing vital knowledge on the design and synthesis of specific metal-organic framework (MOF) classes as well as their properties, this ready reference summarizes the state of the art in chemistry.
Divided into four parts, the first begins with a basic introduction to typical cluster units or coordination geometries and provides examples of recent and advanced MOF structures and applications typical for the respective class. Part II covers recent progress in linker chemistries, while special MOF classes and morphology design are described in Part III. The fourth part deals with advanced characterization techniques, such as NMR, in situ studies, and modelling. A final unique feature is the inclusion of data sheets of commercially available MOFs in the appendix, enabling experts and newcomers to the field to select the appropriate MOF for a desired application.
A must-have reference for chemists, materials scientists, and engineers in academia and industry working in the field of catalysis, gas and water purification, energy storage, separation, and sensors.
About the Author
Stefan Kaskel is the Head of the Inorganic Chemistry Department at Technical University Dresden, Germany, and Head of the Business Unit Chemical Surface and Reaction Technology at Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS) in Dresden. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Tubingen, Germany, in 1997. He then was a Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at Iowa State University, Ames (USA), working with John D. Corbett (1998 to 2000). He did his habilitation with Ferdi Schuth at the MPI fur Kohlenforschung in Mulheim a.d. Ruhr(Germany, 2000 - 2003) and was a group leader at this institute from 2002 to 2004. He was appointed full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the TU Dresden in June 2004. His research is focused on porous and nanostructured materials. He has coordinated the German MOF program from 2008 to 2014, with 36 German MOF groups involved and is Head of the DECHEMA task group on Metal-Organic Frameworks initiating the European MOF Conference Series (EuroMOF). He has authored more than 250 scientific publications and more than 40 patents.
