MOFs under pressure!

Porous Peptides

Nanoporous MOFs

Coordination Networks

From the essential vacuum of space, to the pressures found at the centre of a neutron star, there are many more orders of magnitudes of pressure available to us in the Universe than there is temperature, and as a consequence we can induce far greater structural changes in materials by applying pressure.

Application of pressure helps us understand the forces that hold molecules together to form solids, thereby enabling us to control and tune the properties of the solids themselves or the molecules they contain.

My current research is focussed on modifying the properties and selectivity of porous materials by applying pressure. Pore size determines the properties of these materials, and the aim of this research is to use pressure to modify properties though compression of pore size and shape
