Super metal organic framework-mineral composite material for hydrogen energy storage

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are an emerging class of crystalline materials that hold huge promise for significant applications such as adsorption, separation, catalysis and drug delivery. Attributed to their exceptional porosity and surface area, the adsorptive performance of MOF materials has high potential for solving challenging issues such as hydrogen storage, greenhouse gas capture and water vapour harvest in arid regions.However, the practical application of many MOF materials encounters challenges from poor chemical stabilities, low yields and expensive manufacturing costs. With …

Research and development of novel building materials using Australian natural minerals

This project will explore the potentials of local natural minerals and waste products for developing next-generation, high-quality precast panels that impose a high cost environmental footprint.Our research will:advance fundamental knowledge of natural mineralsreduce building industry dependence on lower-quality imported productsexpedite local manufacturing of energy efficient solutions for building facades, roofs and wall systems.Use of precast panels speeds up construction, reduces on site defects, construction times, scaffolding and site labour costs. These advantages contribute to increased productivity in the building industry. …
