Functional Metal-organic Frameworks

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) built with the use of organic ligands are the mainstream as an independent scientific area in the field of organometallic material science. The range of applications of such compounds from selective sorption/desorption of gases and small molecules has expanded to include new areas such as energy storage, photovoltaics and piezoelectric sensors. Our group also works in search of targeted synthesis of new and functionalized organometallic nanostructures for use in optical, laser and biomedical applications. Special attention is paid to the search for chemical methods of obtaining metamaterials based on self-organized coordination polymers.
