Article
Employing adsorption technology, metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are found promising to generate cooling, heating, and desalinated water with zero or negligible carbon footprint. In this article, we present various functional groups namely hydroxyl (-OH), amino (-NH2), nitro (-NO2), bromo (-Br) and pyridine (-C5H5N) assisted MIL-125 (Ti) MOFs to co...
Article
The thermodynamic property surfaces such as enthalpy and entropy of an adsorbate + adsorbent systems are essential for designing adsorption-assisted thermal compression, gas storage, separation, and other applications. This paper presents the enthalpy (∆ho) and the entropy (∆so) of the adsorbent-adsorbate system under the barrier of Henry's law reg...
Article
This article focuses on Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulation to tailor zirconium-based metal organic frameworks (MOFs) such as UiO-66(Zr) and MOF-801(Zr). The hydrophilic functional group such as amine (-NH2), hydroxyl (-OH) and pyridine (-C5H5N) and the hydrophobic functional group such as methyl (-CH3) are studied by GCMC simulation. The...

This article presents the entropy flow and generation of an adsorption assisted heat transformation (A-HT) system. Hence the Gibbs analogy and the thermodynamic property fields of adsorbents + water systems are employed to formulate the entropy balance of adsorption beds. Later, the experimentally confirmed isotherms, kinetics and bed heat exchange...
Article
This article presents a comprehensive study of UiO-66 (Zr) based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) plus water systems for various adsorption assisted heat transformation (AAHT) applications such as cooling, heat pump and desalination. The paper at first deals with the evaluation of water adsorption characteristics on the parent and pyridine, amino, a...
Article
The use of environmentally friendly adsorption assisted thermal storage and chiller is hindered by their bulky sizes and poor performances, which are mainly due to the limited characteristics of solid adsorbents and their poor interactions with water. Therefore, this article presents the parent and CH3 ligand MOF-801 (Zr) adsorbents and their synth...
Article
This paper presents molecular simulation and experimental investigation for water adsorption on aluminium fumarate (Al-fum) MOFs, alkali ions doped Al-fum MOF and Al-fum + CHA/AFI zeolite composites. The Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulations have been carried out to calculate water-adsorption isotherms. Based on simulation results, the Al-...

This article presents the static and dynamic modelling of two bed adsorption chiller employing “CHA and AFI type zeolites” as adsorbents and water as adsorbate. The simulation is performed on the basis of experimentally confirmed adsorption isotherms and kinetics data. The performances are calculated in terms of SCP (specific cooling capacity) and...
