Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) as Fuels for Advanced Applications: Evaluating and Modifying the Combustion Energy of Popular MOFs

Systematic investigation of combustion energies for popular metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) reveals energy content comparable to conventional energetic materials and can be further modified and dine-tuned by polymorphism and isostructural ligand replacement to yield materials with energy densities comparable to Diesel or kerosene.
