Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are self-assembled combinations of metals and inorganic ligands that result in a relatively young class of highly ordered, porous materials. MOFs with the ability to [selectively] adsorb molecules into their pores/ on their internal surfaces.

Due to their high surface area (>7000 m2/g), extremely high porosity and favourable thermal properties, MOFs are being investigated in gas storage and separation, purification, carbon capture, utilization and storage, electrochemical energy storage and sensing. Commercial activity has grown greatly in recent years. Baker Hughes has recently purchased Mosaic Materials, which makes carbon dioxide–capturing materials based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).

MOFs are highly attractive for a range of industrial applications as they use non-hazardous feedstock, are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. They are potentially key materials in industrial adsorption, storage processes and catalysis and are a leading technology candidate for carbon capture. MOFs can be used to store, separate, release or protect in a range of applications including:

  • Air and water filtration.
  • Carbon capture, utilization and storage.
  • Gas storage and delivery, and natural gas storage and purification.
  • Improved chemical separations.
  • Batteries and supercapacitors.
  • Food packaging.
  • Anti-bacterials.
  • Drug delivery.
  • Fuel production.
  • Solvent or heavy metal recovery.
  • Adsorbents for organic pollutants. 
  • Water harvesting.
  • Heat exchangers. 
  • Pharmaceuticals

 

A number of start-ups are bringing MOF products to the market, and production volumes have increased in the past two years.
