Gas adsorption studies in metal-organic frameworks
Newby, Ruth (2016) Gas adsorption studies in metal-organic frameworks. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis describes the synthesis of a novel highly stable metal-organic framework, NOTT-300(Cr), as well as the synthesis of three new mixed metal analogues of NOTT-300 using different compositions of aluminium and chromium. These new MOFs were used in gas sorption experiments to investigate potential selectivity and uses for gas stream separations with particular focus on CO2 and C2 hydrocarbons. The gas adsorption properties of NOTT-300(Al) for CO2 and C2 hydrocarbons are also investigated in detail.
