Robust and environmentally friendly MOFs

Abstract : Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are one of the most prominent families of porous materials. With their great chemical and structural versatility, MOFs have shown to be suitable for a great number of applications related to energy, environment, or medical fields. Nevertheless, in order to expand their potential into wider horizons, some limitations must be overcome. MOFs with higher stability (robust MOFs) and greener more efficient synthetic routes are among the main targets that must be achieved in order to promote their use in industry. In the last years, these two aspects have been broadly studied. This chapter presents, firstly, a discussion of some of the most relevant strategies that can be employed to improve chemical, thermal and/or mechanical stabilities of MOFs. Approaches to strengthen/preserve the coordination bond, as well as some other structural factors that can enhance the stability of MOFs are discussed throughout some relevant examples. Finally, some environmentally friendly synthetic pathways for MOFs production are presented.
