Abstract

The study of hybrid inorganic-organic frameworks is one of the most fashionable areas of materials science. The presentation will focus on some aspects of our recent work on hybrid framework, including both nanoporous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and dense systems. Recent work on the mechanical properties of MOFs,1 their behaviour under pressure,2 and amorphization3 will be discussed. We shall also examine some of the potential applications of hybrid frameworks in areas such as hydrogen storage,4 batteries,5 magnetism,6 photoluminescence, 7 and multiferroics.8
