UCF Reticular Synthesis and Materials Design Lab

Our research focuses on combining organic and inorganic syntheses for the preparation of materials with properties by design. We use reticular, organic, and solid-state syntheses as a toolkit for the preparation of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Covalent-Organic Frameworks (COFs) with predetermined properties. We study MOFs and COFsĀ  attributes as solid-state materials to fundamentally understand the structure-property relationships of frameworks for targeted applications.




We are located in the Chemistry Department of the University of Central Florida, on the second floor of the Physical Sciences Building Lab 239 and 238.
