MOF Ligands

Metal organic framework (MOF) ligands are vital connectors between metal centres and clusters, also known as nodes.

Our range of MOF materials are perfect for unlocking the possibilities of novel, functional applications in your research.

Key Features

  • Our MOF ligands boast a rigid backbone with a variety of functional groups, including mono-, bi-, tri-, or tetra-carboxylic acids, hydroxyl groups, nitrogen-containing heterocyclic structures, or mixed functional groups. This diversity enables a wide range of applications.
  • Each MOF ligand carries two sets of functional groups. One set binds to metals, forming the MOF structure. The other set engages in secondary reactivity, post-MOF formation, opening up endless possibilities in material functionality.
  • The physical and chemical properties of the connectors play a decisive role in the properties of the resultant MOFs.

What are Metal Organic Frameworks?

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a class of 3D materials that are made up of metals connected by organic linker compounds. Think of metals and organic compounds as building blocks that form structures. These structures come in a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from 1D to 3D.
