Novel metal organic frameworks : synthesis, characterisation and functions
(University of St Andrews, 2011-05-20) - Thesis,
The synthesis and properties of novel Metal Organic Frameworks were investigated and reported in this thesis. Thirteen new materials have been synthesized and their properties have been discussed with nine of the structures ...
New nitric oxide releasing materials
(University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis,
The aim of this thesis was to examine the ability of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) to store and controllably release biologically significant amounts of nitric oxide (NO). Initial work involved the synthesis of a series ...
Exploiting isotopic enrichment for a solid-state NMR investigation of “ADORable” zeolites and breathing metal-organic frameworks
(University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis,
This thesis combines synthetic studies for isotopic enrichment with solid-state characterisation techniques to investigate two classes of microporous materials: zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). These materials ...
Synthesis and characterization of crystalline microporous materials : investigation of new synthetic routes
(University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis,
Conventionally, crystalline microporous materials such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are synthesized through the hydrothermal route or the trial-and-error approach. Other synthetic strategies may lead to ...
Control of water and toxic gas adsorption in metal-organic frameworks
(University of St Andrews, 2016-06-22) - Thesis,
The research presented in this thesis aims to determine the effectiveness of the uptake of toxic gases by several MOFs for future use in gas-mask cartridges, and to attempt to compensate for any deficiencies they show in ...
