Metal-Organic Frameworks for Chemical Reactions: From Organic Transformations to Energy Applications brings together the latest information on MOFs materials, covering recent technology in the field of manufacturing and design. The book covers different aspects of reactions from energy storage and catalysts, including preparation, design and characterization techniques of MOFs material and applications. This comprehensive resource is ideal for researchers and advanced students studying metal-organic frameworks in academia and industry.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are nanoporous polymers made up of inorganic metal focuses connected by natural ligands. These entities have become a hot area of research because of their exceptional physical and chemical properties that make them useful in different fields, including medicine, energy and the environment. Since combination conditions strongly affect the properties of these compounds, it is especially important to choose an appropriate synthetic technique that produces a product with homogenous morphology, small size dispersion, and high thermal stability.

Key Features

  • Covers the synthetic advantages and versatile applications of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) due to their organic-inorganic hybrid nature and unique porous structure
  • Includes energy applications such as batteries, fuel storage, fuel cells, hydrogen evaluation reactions and super capacitors
  • Features information on using MOFs as a replacement to conventional engineering materials because they are lightweight, less costly, environmentally-friendly and sustainable


Researchers and advanced students working in the area of MOFs and inorganic chemistry.
Researchers in industry working on design and manufacturing of MOF composites
