Research Topic: Advancing the Understanding and Application of Photoactive Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

My PhD project focuses on the development of photoactive Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Metal-Organic complexes. The desired characteristics are transferred onto the material via the optical active linker or ligands, which are designed to possess the desired properties. The characteristics that should be incorporated into the material and subsequently investigated are: photocatalysis, energy transfer and multiphoton absorption as well as the underling structure. The overarching objective of this PhD project is to broaden the understanding of the structure-photophysical-property relationship in these materials.
