This text discusses the synthesis, characterization, and application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for the purpose of adsorbing gases. It provides details on the fundamentals of thermodynamics, mass transfer, and diffusion that are commonly required when evaluating MOF materials for gas separation and storage applications and includes a discussion of molecular simulation tools needed to examine gas adsorption in MOFs. Additionally, the work presents techniques that can be used to characterize MOFs after gas adsorption has occurred and provides guidance on the water stability of these materials. Lastly, applications of MOFs are considered with a discussion of how to measure the gas storage capacity of MOFs, a discussion of how to screen MOFs to for filtration applications, and a discussion of the use of MOFs to perform industrial separations, such as olefin/paraffin separations. Throughout the work, fundamental information, such as a discussion on the calculation of MOF surface area and description of adsorption phenomena in packed-beds, is balanced with a discussion of the results from research literature.

Author Biography

Dr. T. Grant Glover is an Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of South Alabama. He holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, completed a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at Vanderbilt University under the direction of M. Douglas LeVan, and was Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles under the direction of Omar M. Yaghi. Prior to his faculty position, Prof. Glover worked for SAIC and Leidos as a research scientist. His research interests include adsorption behavior, adsorbent materials, metal-organic frameworks, and related surface chemistry. Dr. Bin Mu joined the faculty of the Arizona State University in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy in August 2013. Before this, Bin Mu worked with Prof. Michael Strano in Department of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during his postdoctoral studies. Bin Mu completed his PhD in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011 with Prof. Krista Walton. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the East China University of Science and Technology at Shanghai, China.
