Systematic study of the impact of MOF densification into tablets on textural and mechanical properties

Abstract

Four different Metal-Organic Framework powders (UiO-66, UiO-66-NH2, UiO-67, HKUST-1) were shaped into tablets. The effect of the applied pressure on porous properties, mechanical resistance and tablets bulk density is reported. We observe a linear relationship between densification and tensile strength for all four studied MOFs, with a slope being MOF-dependent. We also report conditions for improving significantly the volumetric uptake. Finally, we evaluated our tablets stability over time in the presence of moisture.
