Inorganic Chemistry in MOF Pores

Metal-organic Framework (MOFs) materials are well known for their ultra-high surface areas and gas storage and separation properties. One strategy for enhancing the performance characteristics of MOFs is to post-synthetically line the pores with metal ions. This talk will canvass our efforts to understand the reactivity of these metal ions in the pore space of MOFs and will highlight how reactions in confined spaces can lead to unexpected reactivity.
