Adsorption on Mesoporous Metal-Organic Frameworks in Solution for Clean Energy, Environment and Healthcare By Alexander Samokhvalov Cover Image


Adsorption and desorption in solution play significant roles in separations, detoxification of waste streams, in purification, chromatography, heterogeneous catalysis, metabolism of medicinal drugs, and beyond. Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are well-ordered 3-dimensional hybrid organic-inorganic polymers which contain metal cations and the structure-building organic "linker" units. Mesoporous MOFs with pore sizes 2-50 nm are particularly suitable for adsorption and adsorption-based separations of large molecules of organic and bio-organic compounds.

Thousands of organic compounds and, in particular, aromatic and heterocyclic compounds are widely used as feedstock for industrial chemical synthesis, as fine chemicals, major components of liquid fossil fuels, dyestuffs, industrial solvents, agricultural chemicals, medicinal drugs, pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). There is a strong interest towards synthesis, characterization and studies of both known and newly synthesized mesoporous MOFs for adsorption in solution to achieve the high adsorption capacity, selectivity, and the possibility of multiple regeneration of "spent" sorbent.

This book covers experimental fundamental research on using mesoporous MOFs in emerging applications of major industrial, environmental and academic importance, especially purification of water and liquid fossil fuels and in advanced biomedical technologies.

About the Author

Alexander Samokhvalov received his BSc and MSc in chemistry at the Novosibirsk State University in Russia. He earned his PhD in chemistry at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. He had spent a few years of postdoctoral training in the United States at Duke University, UC Santa Barbara, and Auburn University in Alabama. Since 2010, he is an assistant professor of physical chemistry at the Chemistry Department of Rutgers University. His research interests are in mechanistic studies of adsorption by metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in solution.
