Over the past two decades, porous and dense metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have evolved into one of the fastest growing research areas in chemistry and materials science. However, a greater understanding and control of MOF formation would be useful in several regards. For instance, we might wish to synthesize new (meta)stable structures that are predicted by computational methods, or tune the composition, shapes, sizes and surfaces of MOF particles to improve uptake kinetics or generate useful mechanical properties. This presentation will highlight some recent advances in our understanding of MOF crystallization, using in-situ techniques to obtain real time kinetic information.

All Department members welcome.
