3rd International Conference on Metal-Organic Frameworks and Open Framework Compounds (MOF2012)

Metal-organic frameworks are one of the most important developments in recent nanoporous material science and we have seen an explosion in the numbers of scientific papers dealing with MOFs in recent years.

The aim of MOF2012 is to address all questions concerning the community working with metal-organic frameworks, metal coordination compounds and related materials covering all aspects of MOFs from synthesis and characterization of new materials over properties of MOFs to all kinds of applications, e.g. in biology/medicine, catalysis, magnetism, luminescence and adsorption. We are looking forward to experimental, theoretical, and modelling contributions along with papers addressing key questions regarding potential industrial applications of this fascinating family of materials.

As at MOF2008 in Augsburg and MOF2010 in Marseille, all oral presentations will be given to the full conference and there will be a strong emphasis on the poster presentation allowing all attendees to view the various aspects of scientific research on these materials.
