报告题目:ProtonConduction in Metal Organic Frameworks

报告人:George Shimizu教授






Metal organic frameworks(MOFs) represent tunable molecular scaffoldings that can be adjusted for abreadth of applications. This presentation will concern our efforts towardstailoring MOFs towards two globally relevant energy challenges, CO2capture and fuel cells.

The first topic concerns MOFsas proton conductors. In this light, MOFs offer several interesting prospectsstemming from their modular syntheses and tunable pore structures. MOFs havebeen shown to be able to conduct protons over 10-2 Scm-1 conductabove the boiling point of water, and also to be robust in humid atmospheres –an ongoing challenge is to merge all desirable properties in one material. Evenwhen the properties of the MOF may not meet a required industrial standard, thecrystallinity of the MOF can allow for added insights to designing bettermaterials and as a foothold for modelling studies.This aspect ofthe talk will cover some recent work to fine tune proton conduction but alsoefforts to make robust materials.
