Check out the Results in Brief for our EU project on CORDIS

Tuning both the photoluminescence and conductive properties of new COP materials Prof. Viñas’s demonstrated a simple and efficient way to achieve tuning by focusing on the accompanying cations of the doping anions, which determine the stoichiometries of the COPs that, … Continue reading

A new material for biobutanol separation

We have discovered a water stable metal-organic framework (MOF) that allows for the separation of butanol from acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) mixtures that are extracted from the fermentation process of biomass feedstock, as part of the standard industrial process to produce biofuels. Check out … Continue reading
