Covalent organic framework (COF) ligands, unlike MOF ligands, are composed of light, non-metal elements like hydrogen, carbon, boron, nitrogen, and oxygen.
Enhance and expand your research applications with our high-quality COF materials.
Key Features and Applications
- COFs ligands are formed from the reaction between organic precursors, resulting in strong covalent bonds. These bonds create stable 2D or 3D structures with well-defined pores formed by cyclic linking of multiple groups.
- Larger pore structures in COF ligands have stronger dispersion forces, eliminating issues like steric hindrance or templating effects.
- COFs are ideal for a variety of applications, including catalysis, gas separation and storage (like hydrogen and methane), luminescence, carbon capture, and pollutant detection.
