Hydrogen Storage in Metal-Organic Frameworks

Abstract

In the past two decades, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), constructed with coordination bonds between organic linkers and inorganic metal clusters, have become a burgeoning field of research and a great potential candidate for hydrogen storage due to their exceptional high porosity, high crystallinity, uniform yet tunable pore size and pore shape, great structural diversity, and various kinds of hydrogen occupation sites. Here, some technical elements are introduced in tailoring MOFs as hydrogen storage resins, including syntax, synthesis, fabrication, evaluation, and benchmark testing. As way of example, MOFs constructed by carboxylate, azolate or mixed linkers, are discussed in the context of hydrogen storage. Last but not least, the postsynthetic modifications on MOF materials to increase the hydrogen storage capacities will be carefully illustrated.
