Framework materials for efficient harvest, conversion and transport of solar and electrochemical energy

Fernando Uribe-Romo
University of Central Florida
Chemistry Building, Room 400
Inorganic Seminar

The ability to design and impose specific molecular traits for targeted properties in inorganic solid-state materials is one of the many challenges in materials science. In our research, we focus our efforts in the design of organic and inorganic molecular building blocks with well-defined properties to be incorporated in solid-state materials in the form of metal-organic and covalent-organic frameworks (MOFs and COFs, respectively). These molecular components provide the frameworks the ability to perform tailored processes relevant to efficient use of energy, such as visible light photocatalysis, and ionic and electronic charge storage and transport. This seminar will describe the approaches followed in our research group to design and prepare advanced titanium-based MOF photocatalysts for the synthesis of complex organic molecules and reduction of carbon dioxide as well as crystallographically aligned COFs for electrochemical applications, specifically as solid-state lithium battery electrolytes.
