Synthesis, characterisation and adsorption properties of metal-organic frameworks and the structural response to functionalisation and temperature
(University of St Andrews, 2012-07) - Thesis,
The synthesis of a scandium aluminium methylphosphonate ScAl₃(CH₃PO₃)₆ isostructural to the aluminium methylphosphonate AlMePO-α and with permanent microporosity is reported here for the first time. Structural characterisation ...
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 ...
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 ...
