Session 10: Metal-Organic Framework Glasses


Metal-organic frameworks are an enormous class of materials, formed from inorganic nodes connected by organic ligands into three-dimensional networks. Over 55,000 exist and are primarily investigated for their abilities in gas sorption, drug delivery, separations and catalysis. Recently, they have also been shown to be a family of glass-formers. These melt-quenched glasses have random networks consisting of transition metal ions linked by organic ligands, and so exist outside of the inorganic, organic and metallic categories currently known.


This session will explore the latest research in the non-crystalline metal-organic framework field, involving synthesis methods, structural characterization, physical and chemical properties, and applications.
