Because of the strong electrostatic interaction between the metal nodes and organic linkers in iron and other high valence metal MOFs, these frameworks are resistant to water and acids.
However, for the same reason, production was limited to small quantities in defective powders. We modeled this substitution reaction and created stepwise processes to promote the flux of ligands or modify the metal. CONEKTIC™ led to MOFs with radical stabilities at all pH levels and production costs at 'pennies a gram'.
The precise amount of kinetic support for each MOF is protected by framergy under their product classification CONEKTIC™. Publications:
