Research Interest

My research is focused on the synthesis and characterization of new metal-organic frameworks(MOFs) with fluorinated or not inorganic building blocks.
The idea is to get highly stable MOFs against water and under harsh condition in order to use them in catalysis and/or gas adsorption/separation.
