PUBLICATION: Finding New MOFs

During my stay in Kaust, I directed my master student Emilie on an interesting project, looking for novel highly connected nets. Unfortunately master internships don’t last forever and the project stayed in standby until my friend Zhijie Chen gave it a second breath. An amazing one. I am really impressed by the achievements here.

This is structure design, period.

Publication: CO2 capture review in Chem. Eng. J.

The third review I contributed to during my time in Kaust is finally available online, published in Chemical Engineering Journal. This time, it is not dealing on materials design, but on CO2 capture from low concentration mixtures. I believe this article written with all the expertise and conviction of my friend and ex colleague Dr. Youssef Belmabkhout will help people understanding more the little details driving the CO2 sorption properties and making one material random, interesting, or even suitable for industrial use…

Publication: Topological explorations in MOFs

This paper published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, from my friends and ex colleagues Dalal and Abdul Malik contain one of the most amazing network topologies I have seen so far !

Award: two prizes at the IEEE scientific image competition

I submitted a picture related to my research project (get the related paper published in Nature Chemistry) to the IEEE scientific image competition.

Thanks to public votes and the choice of the jury, this picture was distinguished by two prizes. The third prize from the public and the second prize for visual impact, delivered by the jury.

This was a nice opportunity to highlight my research !

Publication: Zeolite-like MOFs in Chem. Soc. Rev.

Besides the development of my research projects and as a follow up on MOF design after our recent contribution based on supermolecular building approaches (See the recent article), I have been contributing to a second review, this time related to the design, synthesis and properties of MOFs with zeolitic topologies (ZMOFs).

It was an exciting challenge to produce about 20 original figures that are intuitive, elegant and homogenized from one another. This work is published in Chemical Society Reviews.
