Zeolites are porous materials with a long service to humankind, but still with large potential to develop even further. Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF) and PCPs (Porous Coordination Polymers) are new contenders on the porous materials scene with promises of different applications and sometimes properties radically different from those of zeolites.

This meeting brings together some of the leading scientists in the area as the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) task group on ”Coordination polymers and metal organic frameworks: terminology and nomenclature guidelines”[1] will convene for a final one-day meeting in Stockholm, drafting new IUPAC recommendations.

Speakers and Topics:

  • Taxonomy of MOF Structures
    Michael O’Keeffe, Arizona State University, USA
  • Metal-Organic Frameworks: Synthesis and Applications
    Neil Champness, University of Nottingham, UK
  • New Dimensions of Porous Coordination Polymers/Metal-Organic Frameworks
    Susumu Kitagawa, Kyoto University, Japan
  • Applications of microporous materials: Effects of shape selectivity
    Unni Olsbye, University of Oslo, Norway
  • Multifunctional nanoballs and variable length ligands
    Stuart Batten, Monash University, Australia
  • Adsorption in MOFs: Insights from Molecular Simulation
    Tina Düren, University of Edinburgh, UK
  • Multifunctional Mesoporous Materials: Introducing Chemical Functionality via Rational Design
    Javier García-Martínez, University of Alicante, Spain
  • Recent Progress in Metal-Azolate Frameworks
    Xiao-Ming Chen, Sun Yat-Sen University, China
  • Design and Synthesis of Porous Metal-Organic Frameworks for Gas Storage and Separation
    Myunghyun Paik Suh, Seoul National University, South Korea
