Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)

MOFs represent a new class of compounds that consist of metal nodes and organic ligands to form various nanostructures. Our project, in cooperation with TU Wien and J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry in Prague, aims to study quantum confinement effects in MOFs for optoelectronic and spintronic applications.
