Smart and Programmable Sponges from Design and Synthesis to Implementation
This talk will focus on metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) from basic research to implementation and commercialization. MOFs are a class of porous, crystalline materials composed of metal-based nodes and organic ligands that self-assemble into multi-dimensional lattices. In contrast to conventional porous materials such as zeolites and activated carbon, an abundantly diverse set of molecular building blocks allows for the realization of MOFs with a broad range of properties. We have developed an extensive understanding of how the physical architecture and chemical properties of MOFs affect material performance in applications such as catalytic activity for chemical warfare agent detoxification.
Who Should Attend
This webinar will benefit beginners and professionals in research, development, processing or quality control who want to acquire a basic understanding of comprehensive material characterization or who want to refresh and expand existing knowledge. Furthermore, those who are looking for suggestions for further possible uses of physisorption, chemisorption, mercury porosimetry, particle size characterization and powder rheology as well as microreaction technology should attend this webinar.
What You Will Learn
This webinar will:
- Explore applications of vapor sorption analysis
- Compare volumetric, gravimetric, and dynamic vapor sorption characterization methods
