Metal Organic Frameworks Based Materials for Renewable Energy Applications


Metal Organic Frameworks Based Materials for Renewable Energy Applications

Haydar Göksu, Nursefa Zengin, Fatih Şen

Crystalline metal-organic frames (MOFs) fall into the category of high potential porous materials that can be used in gas storage, adsorption / separation, adsorption as adsorbent, catalysis, magnetism, sensor design and drug delivery. MOFs are typically formed by self-assembly, where secondary building units (SBUs) are connected with organic ligands to form complex networks. Organic ligands or metallic SBUs may be modified to be critical for their functionality and utility for specific applications in order to control the porosity of MOFs. MOFs are used in renewable energy and environmental applications, application of hydrogen energy, hydrogen storage, storage and conversion of CO2, biogas production, thermal energy storage, rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors and in dye sensitized solar cells.
