DUT-6 Mesopore

The project focuses on scalable MOF production processes and on specific MOF based products, which have received little evaluation so far.

MOF production:

  • reaction and process techniques for the MOF production
  • semi-finished MOFs and substrates for MOF coatings

MOF based products/systems:

  • storage systems for highly reactive gases and liquids and gaseous fuels for mobile applications
  • thermally powered heat pumps and cooling machines as well as heat storage processes based on adsorptive heat transformation
  • separation membranes for selective gas cleaning processes
  • sensors for the selective gas detection by printed MOF structures and optical detection
