Conferencia: "From porous metal-organic frameworks to metal-organic polyhedra: a journey in miniaturization" [ CANCELADA ]


Conferencia de Daniel Maspoch (Instituto de Nanociencia y Nanotecnología de Cataluña, ICN2. Bellaterra, Barcelona).

Abstract: Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are among the most attractive porous materials today. Their miniaturization to the nanoscale, to yield nanoMOFs, is expected to expand their scope to myriad applications, from drug-delivery to membranes, open up novel avenues to more traditional storage and catalysis applications, and enable creation of sophisticated ordered superstructures. In this talk, I will explain our last advances in miniaturizing MOFs at the nanoscale for the synthesis of colloidal MOF particles with controlled sizes, shapes and compositions and their combination with other materials (e.g. inorganic nanoparticles and polymers) to make composites. Moreover, I will show how this miniaturization has allowed the creation of MOF-based three-dimensional photonic crystals, programmable self-assembling 3D architectures and CO2 sensors, among other applications. Finally, I will show the ultimate miniaturization of MOFs at the nanoscale: the formation of metal-organic polyhedra (MOPs); a new class of porous “molecular nanoparticles”.
