Zirconium phosphonate-based chiral porous hybrid materials containing the Ru BINAP diamine Cl 2 precatalysts showed excellent enantioselectivity up to Some MOF materials may resemble enzymes when they combine isolated polynuclear sites, dynamic host—guest responses, and hydrophobic cavity environment which are characteristics of an enzyme.
In enzymatic systems, protein units show "molecular recognition", high affinity for specific substrates. It seems that molecular recognition effects are limited in zeolites by the rigid zeolite structure. Indeed, many hybrid frameworks contain organic parts that can rotate as a result of stimuli, such as light and heat.
In photocatalysis, the use of mononuclear complexes is usually limited either because they only undergo single- electron process or from the need for high-energy irradiation. In this case, binuclear systems have a number of attractive features for the development of photocatalysts.
Molecular hydrogen has the highest specific energy of any fuel. However unless the hydrogen gas is compressed, its volumetric energy density is very low, so the transportation and storage of hydrogen require energy-intensive compression and liquefaction processes. Compared to an empty gas cylindera MOF-filled gas cylinder can store more hydrogen at a given pressure because hydrogen molecules adsorb to the surface of MOFs.
Furthermore, MOFs are free of dead-volume, so there is almost no loss of storage capacity as a result of space-blocking by non-accessible volume. No large activation barriers are required when liberating the adsorbed hydrogen.
The extent to which a gas can adsorb to a MOF's surface depends on the temperature and pressure of the gas. In general, adsorption increases with decreasing temperature and increasing pressure until a maximum is reached, typically bar, after which the adsorption capacity decreases.
The U. Department of Energy DOE has published a list of yearly technical system targets for on-board hydrogen storage for light-duty fuel cell vehicles which guide researchers in the field 5. A benchmark material to this end is MOF which was found to store hydrogen at 7. Another exemplary material is PCN which exhibits a hydrogen uptake of 6. Despite these promising MOF examples, the classes of synthetic porous materials with the highest performance for practical hydrogen storage are activated carbon and covalent organic frameworks COFs.
Practical applications of MOFs for hydrogen storage are met with several challenges. For hydrogen adsorption near room temperature, the hydrogen binding energy would need to be increased considerably. Carboxylate-based MOFs have by far received the most attention because. Lighter main group metal ions have also been explored. Be 12 OH 12 BTB 4the first successfully synthesized and structurally characterized MOF consisting of a light main group metal ion, shows high hydrogen storage capacity, but it is too toxic to be employed practically.
The following is a list of several MOFs that are considered to have the best properties for hydrogen storage as of May in order of decreasing hydrogen storage capacity. Therefore, it is not yet known whether materials with high surface areas, small pores, or di- or trivalent metal clusters produce the most favorable MOFs for hydrogen storage. Hydrogen storage capacity at 77 K : 8.
High hydrogen uptake is attributed to overlapping attractive potentials from multiple copper paddle-wheel units: each Cu II center can potentially lose a terminal solvent ligand bound in the axial position, providing an open coordination site for hydrogen binding.
To date, hydrogen storage in MOFs at room temperature is a battle between maximizing storage capacity and maintaining reasonable desorption rates, while conserving the integrity of the adsorbent framework e. There are two major strategies governing the design of MOFs for hydrogen storage:. The general trend in MOFs used for hydrogen storage is that the greater the surface area, the more hydrogen the MOF can store. High surface area materials tend to exhibit increased micropore volume and inherently low bulk density, allowing for more hydrogen adsorption to occur.
High hydrogen adsorption enthalpy is also important. Synthetically, this may be achieved by using ligands whose geometries prevent the metal from being fully coordinated, by removing volatile metal-bound solvent molecules over the course of synthesis, and by post-synthetic impregnation with additional metal cations.
A problem with this approach is that MOFs with exposed metal surfaces have lower concentrations of linkers; this makes them difficult to synthesize, as they are prone to framework collapse. This may diminish their useful lifetimes as well. MOFs are frequently sensitive to moisture in the air. Studies on metal analogues have unraveled the ability of metals other than Zn to stand higher water concentrations at high temperatures.
To compensate for this, specially constructed storage containers are required, which can be costly. Strong metal-ligand bonds, such as in metal-imidazolate, -triazolate, and -pyrazolate frameworks, are known to decrease a MOF's sensitivity to air, reducing the expense of storage.
In a microporous material where physisorption and weak van der Waals forces dominate adsorption, the storage density is greatly dependent on the size of the pores. At this width, exactly two layers of hydrogen molecules adsorb on opposing surfaces with no space left in between.
Structural defects also play an important role in the performance of MOFs. Room-temperature hydrogen uptake via bridged spillover is mainly governed by structural defects, which can have two effects:. Structural defects can also leave metal-containing nodes incompletely coordinated. This enhances the performance of MOFs used for hydrogen storage by increasing the number of accessible metal centers.
Adsorption is the process of trapping atoms or molecules that are incident on a surface; therefore the adsorption capacity of a material increases with its surface area. In three dimensions, the maximum surface area will be obtained by a structure which is highly porous, such that atoms and molecules can access internal surfaces. This simple qualitative argument suggests that the highly porous metal-organic frameworks MOFs should be excellent candidates for hydrogen storage devices.
Adsorption can be broadly classified as being one of two types: physisorption or chemisorption. In both cases, the adsorbate atoms or molecules i. The degree of orbital overlap then determines if the interactions will be physisorptive or chemisorptive. Adsorption of molecular hydrogen in MOFs is physisorptive. A complete explanation of the H 2 sorption mechanism in MOFs was achieved by statistical averaging in the grand canonical ensemble, exploring a wide range of pressures and temperatures.
Two hydrogen-uptake measurement methods are used for the characterization of MOFs as hydrogen storage materials: gravimetric and volumetric. To obtain the total amount of hydrogen in the MOF, both the amount of hydrogen absorbed on its surface and the amount of hydrogen residing in its pores should be considered.
The increased mass of the MOF due to the stored hydrogen is directly calculated by a highly sensitive microbalance. Thus, this "weight loss" has to be corrected using the volume of the MOF's frame and the density of hydrogen. The changing of amount of hydrogen stored in the MOF is measured by detecting the varied pressure of hydrogen at constant volume.
Of these, high-pressure gas cylinders and liquid hydrogen in cryogenic tanks are the least practical ways to store hydrogen for the purpose of fuel due to the extremely high pressure required for storing hydrogen gas or the extremely low temperature required for storing hydrogen liquid. The other methods are all being studied and developed extensively. The high surface area and atomic metal sites feature of MOFs make them a suitable candidate for electrocatalystsespecially energy-related ones.
Until now, MOFs have been used extensively as electrocatalyst for water splitting hydrogen evolution reaction and oxygen evolution reactioncarbon dioxide reduction, and oxygen reduction reaction. Using MOFs as precursors to prepare electrocatalysts with carbon support. Using MOFs directly as electrocatalysts. A potential application for MOFs is biological imaging and sensing via photoluminescence. A large subset of luminescent MOFs use lanthanides in the metal clusters.
Lanthanide photoluminescence has many unique properties that make them ideal for imaging applications, such as characteristically sharp and generally non-overlapping emission bands in the visible and near-infrared NIR regions of the spectrum, resistance to photobleaching or 'blinking', and long luminescence lifetimes. Indirect sensitization of lanthanide emission can be accomplished by employing the "antenna effect," where the organic linkers act as antennae and absorb the excitation energy, transfer the energy to the excited state of the lanthanide, and yield lanthanide luminescence upon relaxation.
Upon acetophenone uptake, the MOF shows a very sharp decrease, or quenchingof the luminescence intensity. The latter obstacle addresses the limitation of the antenna effect. Smaller linkers tend to improve MOF stability, but have higher energy absorptions, predominantly in the ultraviolet UV and high-energy visible regions. A design strategy for MOFs with redshifted absorption properties has been accomplished by using large, chromophoric linkers. These linkers are often composed of polyaromatic species, leading to large pore sizes and thus decreased stability.
To circumvent the use of large linkers, other methods are required to redshift the absorbance of the MOF so lower energy excitation sources can be used. Post-synthetic modification PSM is one promising strategy. Luo et al. The amino groups on the linkers served as sites for covalent PSM reactions with either salicylaldehyde or 3-hydroxynaphthalenecarboxyaldehyde.
The authors also propose that this technique could be adapted to similar MOF systems and, by increasing pore volumes with increasing linker lengths, larger pi-conjugated reactants can be used to further redshift the absorption wavelengths. The development of new pathways for efficient nuclear waste administration is essential in wake of increased public concern about radioactive contamination, due to nuclear plant operation and nuclear weapon decommission.
Synthesis of novel materials capable of selective actinide sequestration and separation is one of the current challenges acknowledged in the nuclear waste sector. Metal—organic frameworks MOFs are a promising class of materials to address this challenge due to their porosity, modularity, crystallinity, and tunability. We can use every building blocks of MOF structure for actinide incorporation. First, we can synthesise the MOF starting from actinide salts. In this case actinides go to the metal node.
The synthesis, characterization, and drug-related studies of low toxicity, biocompatible MOFs has shown that they have potential for medical applications. Many groups have synthesized various low toxicity MOFs and have studied their uses in loading and releasing various therapeutic drugs for potential medical applications. A variety of methods exist for inducing drug release, such as pH-response, magnetic-response, ion-response, temperature-response, and pressure response.
In Smaldone et al. Cyclodextrins can interact with appropriately sized drug molecules to yield an inclusion complex.
Subsequently, in Hartlieb et al. The group studied different methods of loading the MOF with ibuprofen as well as performing related bioavailability studies on the ibuprofen-loaded MOF. They investigated two different methods of loading CD-MOF-1 with ibuprofen; crystallization using the potassium salt of ibuprofen as the alkali cation source for production of the MOF, and absorption and deprotonation of the free-acid of ibuprofen into the MOF. In vivo studies in mice showed the same rapid uptake of ibuprofen as the ibuprofen potassium salt control sample with a peak plasma concentration observed within 20 minutes, and the cocrystal has the added benefit of double the half-life in blood plasma samples.
Since these developments many groups have done further research into drug delivery with water-soluble, biocompatible MOFs involving common over-the-counter drugs. Recent research involving MOFs as a drug delivery method includes more than just the encapsulation of everyday drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin. In early Chen et al. In researchers proved that they can create electrically conductive thin films of MOFs Cu 3 BTC 2 also known as HKUST-1 ; BTC, benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylic acid infiltrated with the molecule 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinododimethane that could be used in applications including photovoltaics, sensors and electronic materials and a path towards creating semiconductors.
The team demonstrated tunable, air-stable electrical conductivity with values as high as 7 siemens per meter, comparable to bronze. Ni 3 2,3,6,7,10,hexaiminotriphenylene 2 was shown to be a metal-organic graphene analogue that has a natural band gapmaking it a semiconductor, and is able to self-assemble.
It is an example of conductive metal organic framework. It represents a family of similar compounds. Because of the symmetry and geometry in 2,3,6,7,10,hexaiminotriphenylene HITPthe overall organometallic complex has an almost fractal nature that allows it to perfectly self-organize.
By contrast, graphene must be doped to give it the properties of a semiconductor. Biomolecules can be incorporated during the MOF crystallization process. Enzymes encapsulated in this way were stable and active even after being exposed to harsh conditions e. Because of their small, tunable pore sizes and high void fractions, MOFs are a promising potential material for use as an adsorbent to capture CO 2.
MOFs could be employed in each of the main three carbon capture configurations for coal-fired power plants: pre-combustion, post-combustion, and oxy-combustion. In post-combustion carbon capture, the flue gas from the power plant would be fed through a MOF in a packed-bed reactor setup. CO 2 can bind to the MOF surface through either physisorptionwhich is caused by Van der Waals interactionsor chemisorptionwhich is caused by covalent bond formation.
This process is known as regeneration. In a pressure swing, the pressure would be decreased until CO 2 desorbs. In addition to their tunable selectivities for different molecules, another property of MOFs that makes them a good candidate for carbon capture is their low heat capacities.
This high heat capacity contributes to the energy penalty in the solvent regeneration step, i. In a collaborative project sponsored by the U.
The MOF Mg dobdc has a MOF membranes can mimic substantial ion selectivity. This offers the potential for use in desalination and water treatment. As of reverse osmosis supplied more than half of global desalination capacity, and the last stage of most water treatment processes. Osmosis does not use dehydration of ions, or selective ion transport in biological channels and it is not energy efficient. The mining industry, uses membrane-based processes to reduce water pollution, and to recover metals.
MOFs could be used to extract metals such as lithium from seawater and waste streams. MOF membranes such as ZIF-8 and UiO membranes with uniform subnanometer pores consisting of angstrom-scale windows and nanometer-scale cavities displayed ultrafast selective transport of alkali metal ions. The windows acted as ion selectivity filters for alkali metal ions, while the cavities functioned as pores for transport.
MOFs have been demonstrated that capture water vapor from the air. MOFs could also be used to increase energy efficiency in room temperature space cooling applications. When cooling outdoor air, a cooling unit must deal with both the air's sensible heat and latent heat. Typical vapor-compression-air-conditioning VCAC units manage the latent heat in air through cooling fins held below the dew point temperature of the moist air at the intake. These fins condense the water, dehydrating the air and thus substantially reducing the air's heat content.
The cooler's energy usage is highly dependent on the cooling coil's temperature and would be improved greatly if the temperature of this coil could be raised above the dew point. One such means is by adsorbing the water from the air into a desiccant coated onto the heat exchangers, using the waste heat exhausted from the unit to desorb the water from the sorbent and thus regenerate the desiccant for repeated usage.
Some MOFs also exhibit spontaneous electric polarization, which occurs due to the ordering of electric dipoles polar linkers or guest molecules below a certain phase transition temperature.
This material property is highly interesting for construction of memory devices with high information density. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Metal-organic framework. Dimensionality of Organic. Main article: Hydrogen storage. Six diamond-shaped channels upper with diameter of Hydrogen storage capacity: 7. MOF has larger pores, so hydrogen is compressed within holes rather than adsorbed to the surface.
This leads to higher total gravimetric uptake but lower volumetric storage density compared to MOF MOF-5 has received much attention from theorists because of the partial charges on the MOF surface, which provide a means of strengthening the binding hydrogen through dipole -induced intermolecular interactions; however, MOF-5 has poor performance at room temperature 9.
This MOF is the first demonstration of open metal coordination sites increasing strength of hydrogen adsorption, which results in improved performance at K. It has relatively strong metal-hydrogen interactions, attributed to a spin state change upon binding or to a classical Coulombic attraction. MIN D. SIM Radio sounding B. Radio monitoring D.

Randall McClellan was a founding member of the electronic music studio at the Eastman School of Music in where he later received a Ph. A growing interest in North Indian music and vocal technique prompted him to develop his personal compositional practice into an active platform for inducing altered states of mind.
He constructed his concerts to be spaces for harmonization of mind and body through a musical practice informed by his esoteric studies of ancient mystery schools and sacred geometry, believing these to be primarily teachings on intentional resonance. These Various - Black Swing Emission N° 35 (CD) were given between and in semi-darkened spaces that allowed listeners to relax on carpeting while being enveloped by sound.
Each improvisation lasts from twenty-five to forty-five minutes. An entire performance is up to three hours and is designed to provide an environment of meditative sound. They gained in popularity and were soon attended by larger audiences. The "Music of Rana" Environmental Series uses synthesizers, drone box, tamboura, voice and tape delay to create an environment of continuously evolving multi-layered melody. Described as subtle, graceful and of other worlds.
The name RANA, meaning "Sunbreath", has its origin in ancient philosophical concepts that recognized vibration as the fundamental creative force and central principle of the many esoteric mystery schools of the ancient world.
It is now evident that the use of music for its ability to alter mind states Various - Black Swing Emission N° 35 (CD) for its effectiveness as a therapeutic aid was music's original purpose and an important concept of these mystery schools.
In the broadest sense, the practice of music for its healing ability may well stand as our oldest continuous musical tradition. This album is the first volume in the series, previously issued as a cassette inand part of the cassette box set published by Sun Ark in These compositions are selected for their meditational and healing abilities.
Edition of Reissue, originally released in The album boasts an impressive list of session musicians including Ansel Collins on keyboards and Lloyd Parks and Aston Barrett both on bass guitar. The album was one of the first to showcase Pablo's unique use of the melodica. Making use of the emergent technology of the early '90s, Equator was one of the first albums to be mixed with digital equipment, weaving together a blend of studio, live and location recordings to create their own deeply immersive, enveloping soundscapes.
Brooding atmospheres unfold underneath a wide range of ethnic percussion and deep, meditative basslines -- existing in a unique cross-section of Hassell -inspired 4th world mystery, Industrial landscapes and the rich middle-eastern projections pioneered by Muslimgauze.
It's a deeply hypnotic work that joins the dots between the late 80's industrial scene and the smoked-out chill out rooms of the '90s, which should have received more attention at the time, were it not for the haphazard Staalplaat label who ensured O Yuki Conjugate remained a total obscurity in their home country.

Bonfire Records present a reissue of Siren's self-titled album, originally released on John Peel 's Dandelion label in Standing on the verge of British blues, folk and rawk n' roll, Siren could have been easily labeled as the British answer to Canned Heatbut there's even more. Licensed by Cherry Red. I play it a lot, and that's the nicest thing I can say about an album. When you just thought 'Thank God for that! LP version. Eleven tracks of unique pop fusions meander through states of casualness, a nocturnal thirst for adventure, and the intense yearnings of hot, sultry afternoons with an uneven and brittle quality.
This album, which has gathered cult status in recent years, is the project of musical visionary Yasuaki Shimizu, and considered to be a highlight of his solo career. Kakashi offers a similar blend of saxophone experimentations, jazz fusion and ambient dub excursions. Born in New Zealand, but based in Peckham, literally around the corner from Henry Wu and Bradley Zerothese brothers have made a real mark on the scene in London. The duo's approach to production has matured immeasurably in the last year, as is evident in the restrained potency and poetic subtlety Various - Black Swing Emission N° 35 (CD) the four tracks Various - Black Swing Emission N° 35 (CD) comprise this accomplished EP.
The record channels a delicate late night energy, equally indebted to Ron Trent as it is the hazy atmospheres of Burial. Originally released in on the Edipan imprint, Research of Sound potentially features the most compelling jazz-funk tunes ever released on an Italian library record. Amleto Armandoalso known as "Puccio" Roelenswas one of the greatest composers of his living time, notably working for national television Rai and Vedette Records and also leading several orchestras and playing piano in many sessions.
Don't look further for killer rare grooves; Roelens is on top of the game and his lysergic take on funk is something you cannot dismiss, even 45 years later. Stunning drum breaks, fuzzy guitars, luscious electric piano lines, and an impressive horn section led by Dino Piana. Fully licensed; edition of Danish pianist Tom Prehn was one of the first Europeans to deeply explore free music. With his quartet featuring Fritz Krogh on tenor saxophone, Poul Ehlers on bass, and Finn Slumstrup on drums, Prehn recorded Axiom in October,for Sonet, though it went unreleased until because the band felt that their music had moved beyond it already.
To hear the music they were talking about, one could only turn to two privately-made reel-to-reel tapes, Centrifuga and Sohlvervrecorded in August,and January,respectively. Both sessions took place under casual circumstances at Prehn's summer cottage outside Aarhus, but the music was dead serious -- some of the most adventurous improvising yet made by a group on the continent.
These tapes have been the stuff of legend. Only a couple copies of them exist, and they're spoken of in hushed tones by folks in the know, most of whom have never heard what they sound like. The earlier recording, which consists of a single magnificent minute track, is one of the group's free jazz pinnacles, with Slumstrup featured as a soloist, playing in top form, with the band building structures around his propulsive and sensitive kit-work.
On Sohlvervwhich translates as "solstice," the band enters completely unknown terrain, working through a series of four sections with solos featured by each bandmember. Here Krogh reveals his incredible force as an idea generator. As Mats Gustafsson says in his liner notes: " Close-miked percussive sax-pad treatments that swing like mad and give the music a VERY radical profile and color.
Mastered directly from the original reels, with notes by Gustafsson and facsimile reproductions of both tape covers.
Never reissued in any form until now. Seriously, as the old adage goes, this is music that needs to be heard to be believed. The collection includes all of The Middle Class's early studio recordings, along with a never before released four-song studio demo.
This pioneering Orange County band's original sides have been notoriously hard to find, landing in the collections of only those willing to pay dearly for them. Until now Since that initial jam session, when Brown began experimenting with his signature plywood crate drum rhythms, they have released three LPs and a clutch of self-released cassette and digital releases.
Recorded on the last day of their spring tour, the record puts a new perspective on themes from their body of work: a little more intimacy, a little more freedom, a little more controlled chaos. Brown's idiosyncratic rhythms are all the more hypnotizing in Tubby's cozy setting, and Chen's furious guitar work cuts and hums with sounds seemingly only attainable on stage.
It's an album both challenging and immediate. The expanded 75 Dollar Bill's affinity for improvisation and the avant-garde even leads to a rousing take on the Ornette Coleman classic, 'Friends And Neighbors' that feels right at home in their own repertoire. The listener can't help but feel present and part of the communal joy and catharsis being shared here in this room. This performance at Tubby's turned out not only to be the last show of their tour, but the last show possible as the pandemic hit.
