Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have emerged as a new family of nanoporous materials. With an enormous choice of inorganic/organic building blocks, MOFs possess a wide range of surface area, pore size, and functionality and, thus, have been considered versatile materials for many potential applications. This book presents a broad collection of recent modeling studies in the field of MOFs toward potential engineering applications, such as gas storage/separation, carbon capture, catalysis, water purification, and drug delivery. The subject of this book renders it unique, for while the various topics on MOFs boast vast literature, there is not yet a single coherent collection for modeling endeavors. The book will appeal to scientists, engineers, and students in the multidisciplinary intersections of materials science, chemistry, and engineering.

Composites based on Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have exceptional physical and chemical properties and offer a great number of advanced applications in such fields as energy storage, energy conversion by catalysis, sensors for environmental applications, environment safety and industrial wastewater treatments. They also have interesting medical applications, such as encapsulation of enzymes. The present book covers design, synthesis and preparation of various MOFs, as well as the resulting product characteristics: homogenous morphology, small size dispersion, high thermal stability and desired surface area.
Metal–organic frameworks are among the most promising novel materials. The concept of MOFs was first introduced in 1990. They were actually initially used in catalysis, gas separation, membranes, electrochemical sensors. Later on, they were introduced as SPE sorbents for PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) in environmental water samples, then the range expanded to the field of analytical chemistry, both in chromatographic separation and sample preparation, with great success in, e.g., SPE and SPME (Solid Phase Mico-extraction). Since then, the number of analytical applications implementing MOFs as sorbents in sorptive sample preparation approaches is increasing. Τhis is reinforced by the fact that, at least theoretically, an infinite number of structures can be designed and synthesized, thus making tuneability one of the most unique characteristics of MOF materials. Moreover, they have been designed in various shapes, such as columns, fibers, and films, so that they can meet more analytical challenges with improved analytical features.Their exceptional properties attracted the interest of analytical chemists who have taken advantage of the unique structures and properties and have already introduced them in several sample pretreatment techniques, such as solid phase extraction, dispersive SPE, magnetic solid phase extraction, solid phase microextraction, stir bar sorptive extraction, etc.
