Article
With the aim of understanding heat transfer during structural changes in breathing porous crystals upon gas loading, we study the effect of pore expansion on the thermal conductivity of a series of idealized materials containing adsorbed gas using molecular dynamics simulations. We calculated thermal conductivity in three main axes of the crystal l...
Article
Nanoscale devices and machines that can be externally controlled or programmed promise revolutionary technological improvements. One example of such machines are nanocars, which are organic supramolecular structures (typically between 200–2,000 Da) designed to achieve controlled molecular motion on atomically smooth surfaces. Spurred by a recent gl...

Silver nanofilament formation dynamics are reported for an ionic liquid (IL)‐filled solid polymer electrolyte prepared by a direct‐write process using a conductive atomic force microscope (C‐AFM). Filaments are electrochemically formed at hundreds of xy locations on a ≈40 nm thick polymer electrolyte, polyethylene glycol diacrylate (PEGDA)/[BMIM]PF...
Article
A database containing 2224 data points for CH4 storage or delivery in metal organic frameworks (MOFs) was analysed using machine learning tools to extract knowledge for generalization. The database was first reviewed to observe the basic trends and patterns. It was then analysed using decision trees and artificial neural networks (ANN) to extract h...
Article
In practice, the usefulness of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for many gas storage applications depends on their ability to rapidly dissipate the heat generated during the exothermic adsorption process. MOFs can be precisely designed to have a wide variety of architectures which can allow tuning their thermal conductivity. In this work, we use mol...
Article
Interpenetration is a commonly observed phenomenon in metal organic frameworks (MOFs) where multiple frameworks are entangled with each other. Hetero-interpenetration, where two (or more) distinct frameworks entangle with one another, is much rarer, although several cases have been observed in recent years. Interpenetration of either kind (hetero o...
Article
Efficient separation of gases has industrial, economic, and environmental importance. Here, gas separation performance of a metal organic framework (MOF) is enhanced by ionic liquid (IL) incorporation. One of the most commonly used ILs, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([BMIM][BF4]), was incorporated into a commercially available MOF,...
Article
The large number of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) represents both an opportunity and a challenge for identification of materials exhibiting promising properties in gas separations. We used molecular simulations to screen 250 different MOF structures in order to examine their adsorption-based CH4/H2 separation performances. Adsorption selectivity,...
Article
A key challenge preventing CH4-driven energy future is the lack of effective, economic and safe on-board CH4 storage systems. In this study, computational tools were utilized to examine CH4 storage capacity of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) under practical operating conditions. Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulations were performed to calcu...
