MOFs in clean energy

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of porous hybrid materials composed of metal clusturs interconnected by organic linkers. Since the 1990s, this material have emerged as an extensive class of crystalline materials with ultrahigh porosity and enormous internal surface areas. These properties, together with the extraordinary degree of variability for both the organic and inorganic components of their structures, make MOFs of interest for potential applications in clean energy, most significantly as storage media for gases such as hydrogen and methane, and as high-capacity adsorbents to meet various separation needs. Additional applications in membranes, thin- film devices, catalysis, and biomedical imaging are increasingly gaining importance.

MOFs technology

Taking MOFs technology from laboratory to pilot scale remains a big challenge for most of the discovered structures. Besides reaction systems and synthetic approach, the availability of organic linkers at large scale still problematic. To date, of a thousand of known MOFs linkers only a few appers to be commercialy available at kilogram scale.  

To bring your project to fruition, Sikémia’s team will support you from the early stage of your project by:

  • Offering you a wide range of MOFs linkers at laboratory scale.
  • Making grate efforts to innovate and find the best synhetic approache for any custom linkers.
  • Upscaling and optimazing of a synthetic route leading to a pure linkers at kilogram scale.
