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

submitted on 06.04.2019, 13:30 and posted on 08.04.2019, 15:40 by Hatem M. Titi, Mihails Arhangelskis, Athanassis Katsenis, Cristina Mottillo, Ghada Ayoub, Jean-Louis Do, Athena M. Fidelli, Robin Rogers, Tomislav Friscic
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.
