MULTICEM - Multifunctional Materials for Catalysis, Energy and Medicine
Our research focuses on the investigation of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and their various forms, including hybrids, composites, derivatives, and related porous materials. We are interested in understanding the structure-property-application relationships of these multifunctional materials. By integrating these rationally designed materials with additive manufacturing techniques, we extend their multifunctionality and introduce new properties for a variety of applications, including photo/electrocatalysis, energy storage and conversion systems. We also explore the potential of biocompatible MOFs and their derivatives in medicine, particularly in multifunctional drug delivery systems.
