Le Calvez, C., Zouboulaki, M., Petit, C., Peeva, L. & Shirshova, N. (2016). One step synthesis of MOF-polymer composites. RSC Advances 6(21): 17314-17317.

Author(s) from Durham


Two different approaches for the one step synthesis of metal organic framework – polymer composites are discussed. An emulsion templating approach allows simultaneous MOF crystallization and polymerization of the internal phase of the emulsion resulting in the formation of porous MOF–polyHIPE composites.
