Research Units  2433
Switchable Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF-Switches)
The new research unit primarily addresses the fundamentals of porosity switching phenomena in the solid state and the underlying principles. By selecting suitable model materials, the role of network constituents on the degree of flexibility will be studied in a collaborative and closely coordinated experimental and theoretical approach in order to derive a predictive model for framework flexibility. A key requirement for the development of rational and predictive concepts is a detailed in situ analysis of structural transformations in the presence of the gaseous species that trigger the switching process. Parallelized physical characterization tools will be established enabling the application of in situ global scattering techniques (XRD) and in situ local probe spectroscopies (NMR, EPR, EXAFS) in order to analyze the microscopic structural transformations and dynamics induced by host/guest interactions during adsorption/desorption.
