Evaluation and Application of New Nanoporous Materials for Acid Gas Separations
I am interested in using microporous materials for adsorption and membrane separation processes. I have worked on a range of different problems during my thesis, using both zeolites and metal-organic framework materials. One contribution of my work is tuning the organic linker composition of a series of zeolitic imidazolate framework materials that has shown the ability to improve both the adsorption and diffusion properties for acid gas separations.
