HKUST-1 is a copper-based metal-organic framework also known as MOF-199 or CU-BTC. Its typical blue color will change according to the amount of adsorbed water molecules – the lighter the MOF the more water is adsorbed.
HKUST-1 is one of the most researched metal-organic framework.
- Adsorption and storage of gases (carbon dioxid CO, nitrogen N2, oxygen O2, hydrogen H2)
- Gas sensing and separation (e.g. CO2)
- Ionic and electrical conductivity
Surface area: 1100 – 2200 m2/gr (BET)
