Advisors: Sankar Nair, David S. Sholl, Krista S. Walton, Yoshiaki Kawajiri, Thomas M. OrlandoSeparation technology is central to industrial chemical processes, and accounts for ~15% of the world's energy consumption. Large energy reduction opportunities exist if traditional separation...
Computational Characterization of Disordered Metal-Organic Frameworks
29 May 2019 | Contributor(s):: Han, Rebecca
Advisors: David S Sholl, Ryan P Lively, Krista S Walton, Angus P Wilkinson, Sankar NairMetal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of crystalline nanoporous adsorbents with numerous applications due to their highly tunable physical and chemical properties. However, MOFs are limited by their...
