The detection of compounds with sensors has broad applications, from common ones like the blood glucose sensor (for diabetes control) to the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to monitor air quality in the industrial work environment. In the sensing technology, the desirable characteristics in a sensor are high sensitivity, selectivity, quick response time, stability, reusability, and low cost. In most cases, existing technology is limited by their detection limit or low reliability, to improve these features the necessity of new materials has increased the research in this area in the last decades. This blog is dedicated to describing a new class of materials, Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), which have shown promising results on different sensor applications.
The semiconductor industry relies heavily on highly purified gases for their production processes. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have shown great potential in gas purification and other related applications. In this article, we will take a look at how gases used in the fabrication process of semiconductors are purified and where metal-organic frameworks can be applied. Read More
Many industries rely on cleanrooms for a controlled environment in manufacturing or scientific research. Moreover, cleanrooms are designed to regulate the level of pollutants inside the rooms and securely contain hazardous substances at the same time. Find out, how metal-organic frameworks offer reliable solutions to multiple risk factors under these conditions! Read More
