Cooperative Phenomena in Framework Materials: Faraday Discussion 225


About this book

There has been exponential growth in the number of nanoporous framework materials reported in the scientific literature over recent years, with thousands of new metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), molecular framework materials, inorganic framework materials, and supramolecular frameworks. These novel families of materials open up new horizons in practically all branches of engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine.

Many framework materials are based on relatively weak interactions (coordinative bonds, π−π stacking, hydrogen bonds, etc.), and present large numbers of intramolecular degrees of freedom. Evidence is accumulating that there is a propensity among these framework materials to display large-scale dynamic behaviour. These cooperative phenomena are very diverse both in terms of their microscopic origins and their macroscopic manifestations.

This volume brings together internationally leading researchers to identify the open questions and challenges in this field as well as the best ways to address them. The topics covered include:

Materials breaking the rules
Advanced characterisation techniques: multi-scale, in situ and time-resolved
Novel computational tools
Toward complex systems and devices

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2019) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.797.
