Webinar: Molecular Simulation and Machine to Rapidly Predict the Adsorption Properties of Metal-organic Frameworks
  • Date From 14th January 2021
  • Date To 14th January 2021
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 14:00 GMT. Duration: 1 hour.

Overview

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are an interesting class of materials synthesized in a “building-block” that enables tuning for specific applications. However, the enormous number of building blocks makes it challenging to select the best material for a given application. We describe methods using molecular simulation and machine learning to accelerate the selection of top MOFs for applications such as hydrogen storage and adsorption separations.

Aimed at those within the energy industry or those with an interest in energy storage. Delegates will gain an increased understanding of novel energy storage techniques.
