Novel Microfluidic Technique to Fabricate MOF Membranes Inside Hollow Polymer Fibers

Novel Microfluidic Technique to Fabricate MOF Membranes Inside Hollow Polymer Fibers

Researchers have developed a microfluidic technique for fabricating a new class of metal-organic framework (MOF) membranes inside hollow polymer fibers that are just a few hundred microns in diameter. The new fabrication process, believed to be the first to grow MOF membranes inside hollow fibers, could potentially change the way large-scale energy-intensive chemical separations are done. [More]
