How MOFs save the climate from carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases

By | Adsorption, Gas Capture and Sequestration | No Comments
Global temperature has been on the rise since the birth of the modern industrial revolution after World War II. The subsequent effects have currently led to over 400 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. Metal-organic frameworks offer a capturing and sequestration alternative to commonly used materials that can reduce free CO2 and other green house gases in the atmosphere. Read More

The future of drug delivery – targeted, timed and non-toxic release of APIs using MOFs

By | Pharmaceuticals | No Comments
How a drug — more precisely an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) — is taken up by the body and delivered to the site of disease, has a tremendous effect on the efficacy of the API itself. A large amount of research has been done on applying metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as drug delivery agents. We take a look into what good drug delivery agents do and why metal-organic frameworks are well suited for this job. Read More

How toxic are MOFs?

By | Pharmaceuticals | No Comments
The current developments around the application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications are forcing us to have a closer look at how harmful they are. In this post, we have a look at the toxicity of MOFs, the current status quo of research, and what’s coming. Read More
