THE MAKING OF METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS (TMO-MOF) 2017
31 Oct 2017 - 03 Nov 2017
Faculty of Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia
Foundry of Reticular Materials for Sustainability (FORMS) was created to spearhead translational research of MOFs in Malaysia by research networking between Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and University of California, Berkeley (UCB).
FORMS is based at Institute of Advanced Technology (ITMA) and the Faculty of Science, UPM, and collaborates with other faculties and research institutes in the country. The core research activities focus on synthetic chemistry, materials science and agri-bio nanotechnology. These MOFs will find their use in various strategic areas such as catalysis, drugs nanodelivery, veterinary sciences, agriculture-targeted applications, gas storage and wastewater treatment.
What are MOFs?
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are compounds consisting of metal ions or clusters coordinated to organic ligands to form one-, two-, or three-dimensional structures. They are a subclass of coordination polymers, with the special feature that they are often porous.
