What are MOFs?

Metal-Organic Frameworks are crystalline, hybrid materials containing metal ions and organic molecules

The unique features of MOFs, such as their large surface-areas and diversity of structures, makes the them suitable to a broad range of industrial processes.

ProfMOF can provide a you with a variety of zirconium MOFs to meet the needs of your R&D program or industrial application immediately.

News from our research

A small collection of our research. Metal organic frameworks articles. News and more..

Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a relatively new class of nanotechnology materials suitable to a broad range of industrial processes.
As we continuously identify new uses and applications for Metal Organic Frameworks, testing and verification become increasingly important.
The structure and properties of two new UiO-67-type metal–organic frameworks, along with their linker synthesis and powder and single crystal synthesis, are presented.
