Description:

PureGas aims at the design and development of new gas-separation/purification prototype systems, specifically targeted for adsorption based H2 and air purification, by means of novel metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). PureGas will be centered on the synthesis and use of a new family of up-scalable, cost-efficient and highly stable fluorinated metal-organic frameworks-MOFs (F-MOFs) and their functionalized derivatives as novel adsorbents, suitable for removal of H2O and CH4 traces. Simultaneously, the project will design and develop new pressure/thermal/vacuum swing adsorption (PSA/TSA/VSA) processes and pertinent prototype systems based on F-MOFs
