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 ...
Synthesis and properties of scandium carboxylate metal-organic frameworks
(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis,
This work investigated the synthesis, characterisation and properties of known and novel scandium carboxylate Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs). The first part reports the performance of these Sc-MOFs as Lewis acid catalysts. ...
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 ...
