Characterise Metal-Organic Frameworks using Cutting Edge Gas Adsorption
Accurate, High-Resolution Surface Area and Porosity measurement
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have the largest specific surface areas of any materials known making them ideal for for applications ranging from gas storage and separation to catalysis and drug delivery. They offer controllable chemical functionality, as well as ordered structure defined by virtually infinite combinations of metal cluster and organic linker. The surface area and porosity of a MOF are performance-defining, making measurement essential; gas adsorption is the ‘gold standard’ technique.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
– best practices and challenges of sample preparation
– sample degassing
– surface area characterisation
– pore size distribution characterisation, and
– data interpretation of this exciting family of porous materials
Listen to Prof. Omar Farha, describe his research group’s work on MOFs, their use in storage and separation of gases, current commercialisation efforts and the bright future of MOFs in a 4 part series below.

Hydrogen storage potential of MOFs at High Pressure
The HPVA II Series of adsorption analysers from Particulate Systems uses the static volumetric method to obtain high-pressure adsorption and desorption isotherms utilising gases such as hydrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide.
