MOFs are a structurally diverse class of nanoporous materials assembled from metallic and organic constituents. Dr. Datta’s research interest is to develop a platform of highly tunable MOF materials that can be applied for a range of molecular separation processes. Molecular sieving nanoporous (MOF, zeolite) membranes have great potential for advanced separations in the petrochemicals. Therefore, our ultimate objective is to develop economical MOF membrane-based separation technologies via scalable processing strategies.
