Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous materials that exhibit exceptionally high internal surface areas due to their nano-sized pores. This gives MOFs versatility across numerous applications, including petrochemical and gas separation, DNA mimicry, hydrogen production, and removing contaminants like heavy metals, fluoride anions and gold from water.
MOFs show particular promise for separating hydrogen from nitrogen gas mixtures. This separation is integral to clean energy applications, improving fuel cell efficiency, enabling sustainable ammonia synthesis, and reducing environmental impact in various industrial processes. By advancing hydrogen-nitrogen separation, MOFs can play a key role in developing green technologies and practices across the energy and manufacturing sectors.
