Towards practical metal-organic framework materials: Operando and in situ studies by leveraging synchrotron and neutron sources

Abstract:

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a new class of porous materials with dozens of potential future practical applications. This thesis strives to bring that future nearer by leveraging synchrotron and neutron sources to study MOFs for next generation dielectrics, catalysts and sensors. A novel approach to measuring broadband dielectric functions of pelletised MOF powders using specular reflectance Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is developed. MIL-53(Al) is investigated as a...
