More from MOFs: Making, Melting and aMazing Mechanics
YEUNG Hamish Hei-Man
Metal-organic frameworks, MOFs, exhibit some of the most astounding properties found in new materials today. Synergy between building blocks from across the periodic table – organic molecules, coordination compounds and inorganic structure – can result in tunable electronic, mechanical and chemical recognition properties often not found in classical materials. In this short talk I will describe a few recent examples of how the composition and structure of MOFs directly impact how they behave under high pressure, how they are synthesized and even how they can be melted to form MOF liquids.
