The sense of smell opens up a new dimension of technology for humans to explore and harness for our health and well-being, as Chris Wilmer explains in this post about MOF-based e-noses.
Tina Nenoff of Sandia National Laboratories discusses how modeling tools are enabling more rapid synthesis and testing that are increasingly moving MOFs out of the lab and into society.
Material Insights spoke with Joe Zhou of Texas A&M University about his pioneering work in pore engineering, the role of MOFs, and the growing field of interdisciplinary “framework chemistry.”
Materials are taking center stage in the microelectronics industry, according to a new story in C&EN. As microchips get smaller — with a drive to be thinner than 1 nanometer — innovation in materials technology is going to lead the way.
Access to clean water affects more than one-third of the world’s population annually. We need new solutions to ensure clean water for all people.
Seth Cohen of UCSD discusses his team’s pioneering work in postsynthetic modification of MOFs and MOF-polymer hybrids, exciting future applications of the technology, and continuing misconceptions that may make industry reluctant to embrace MOFs.
In a new video, Omar Farha of Northwestern University explains why researchers need to continue making new materials to solve the problems of tomorrow.
Susumu Kitagawa of Kyoto University — renowned for his work on MOFS and coordination chemistry — talks about his early work, the current trends he sees in adoption of MOF technology, and his dream application of MOFs.
The path from an idea to market is rarely an easy one, particularly to make the leap from a piece of scientific research to a commercialized technology. Creating a high-value solution from a promising material sometimes feels like alchemy. But it does not have to be that way. By going back to workflow fundamentals – […]
The U.S. Army RDECOM C&B Center has awarded an initial $9 million contract vehicle to NuMat Technologies, Inc., to develop and manufacture next-generation materials that will protect and sustain the warfighter.
This story was published in Forbes on August 12, 2018. American manufacturing is thriving, not dying. The Rust Belt still makes stuff – and a lot of it. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, real manufacturing output has nearly doubled in the past 30 years. The Rust Belt of the future is not just processed foods, […]
