Electrochemical Applications of Metal -Organic Frameworks: Advances and Future Potential brings together the basics of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs and it's chemistry and electrochemistry), giving the reader an understanding of the complexities and possibilities of MOF electrochemistry. Providing in-depth coverage of various methods of the synthesis of MOFs for their electrochemical applications, the morphological and electrochemical properties of these materials are discussed along with their future development. Sections cover electrochemical applications of MOFs in batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, as anti-corrosive materials, sensors and in electrocatalysis, and more.Recent developments in MOFs that can hold active molecules such as enzymes, bacteria, nanoparticles and promote electrochemical activity are included. This book will be of great interest to researchers and professionals working in industry and academia or anyone interested in the applications of MOF in industrial processes.
