New Metal-Organic Framework Material Can Capture Atmospheric Gas

by Jeff Hopkins, on 7/27/18 8:30 AM

Metal-organic framework (MOF) material offers fantastic future filtration 

Scientists at the University of Manchester in England, the DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and several other institutions have developed a metal-organic framework (MOF) material that can remove ambient atmospheric nitrogen gas.

Unlike other porous materials, this MOF material performs well even in the presence of water, and can be fully regenerated multiple times without degradation of its structure. The discovery could lead to air filtration technologies that cost-effectively capture and convert large quantities of targeted gases, including carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
