Discuss the most curious phenomena and discover their fundamental origins. Get insights from advanced in situ-characterization techniques and meet new cooperation partners.
The modular design of metal organic frameworks and other porous materials has inspired scientists from a wide range of disciplines as well as industrial companies to invent novel functions. Discovery of unique and counterintuitive phenomena, from fundamentals to applications, continues to stimulate theory development as well as synthesis efforts. New generations of materials such as porous glasses or liquids provide novel fundamental insights for promising functions in devices and industrial processes.
Energy, environment, global warming, water, digitalization, medicine and many more themes are at the forefront of societal needs, in decisive aspects relying on porous materials innovations and technology. Tremendous achievements in the past two decades have boosted the performance of open framework materials to record characteristics in terms of accessible porosity, separation efficiency, catalytic activity and functionality. Metal-organic frameworks, zeolite analogues and other materials are used in industrial adsorption as well as storage processes and are indispensable in catalysis.
Transport of charge carriers, heat, and mass transfer in 2D and 3D frameworks is crucial for advanced battery, electrocatalytic, and sensing applications. Thin functional films provide optical or electronic functionality in light-emitting and energy-harvesting devices.
High selectivity in gas separation, excellent performance in water harvesting and heat pumps have stimulated the foundation of various startups all over the world. They profit from selecting the material needed from a massive portfolio of more than 40,000 frameworks known today. Digitalization and in silico prediction of the desired materials’ properties nowadays can serve as a guidance for scientists and entrepreneurs to select the highest performing material for applications providing a truly knowledge-based discovery and invention process.

In 2020 we had to move the MOF conference from Dresden into the virtual room. Happily nearly 1000 participants from all over the world have joined us virtually during MOF2020web.
We like to thank again all speakers that have been willing to hold their lectures online and also to share their recordings with those who have missed or want to review the lectures of MOF2020web again.
