Green processes for the synthesis and activation of MOFs
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline hybrid porous materials, which display an exceptionally high and tunable porosity. These features make them promising candidates in multiple applications such as gas storage, catalysis, sensing and biomedicine. However, among the challenges currently precluding the industrial exploitation of MOFs is the lack of green methods for their preparation and activation. In this context, the use of continuous flow methods coupled with the spray drying technique, water-based synthesis and a novel activation process based on the photo thermal effect will be introduced as alternative strategies towards a greener and safer production and activation of MOFs.
