Multi-Dimensional Networks

Tech ID: 24628 / UC Case 2012-365-0


Professor Yaghi and colleagues have designed and synthesized multi-dimensional networks, similar to porous networks materials of metal oxides or metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Though several organometallic complexes have been proposed for the storage of gaseous carbon containing species, these complexes are unstable at moderate temperatures, difficult to synthesize, and have low storage capacity. In this technology, UCLA researchers have constructed networks with different properties that have wide applications in gas storage, chemical separation, and catalysis.
