Praveen Thallapally's Research on MOFs Featured in Materials Today

Dr. Praveen Thallapally's research on a new metal-organic framework, or MOF, that separates oxygen was featured by Materials Today in March 2016. Thallapally and his colleagues at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory created the material -- a composite of a MOF and a helper molecule where the two work in concert - that separates oxygen from other gases simply and cheaply. The results, reported in Advanced Materials, might help with making pure oxygen for fuel cells, using that oxygen in a fuel cell, and removing oxygen in food packaging, among other uses.
