|Abstract: ||金屬框架材料metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)屬於多孔晶體物質，是由金屬離子與有機配體所組成。因為金屬框架材料有獨特的特性，所以有各式各樣的應用於不同領域，像是吸附、藥物輸送、催化、薄膜等。由於特殊結構、有機官能基、高比表面積、卓越的孔隙體積，這種材料的主要應用在氫氣儲存與二氧化碳分離。在工業上，薄膜已經常被使用。包括利用金屬框架材料所做得創新薄膜，已經廣泛運用在氣體分離。目前在文獻中，MOF-5是最有代表性的金屬有機框架材料，已經成功地合成MOF-5薄膜於氧化鋁上，藉由溶劑熱法。|
;Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous crystalline materials consisting of metal ions linked together by organic bridging ligands. Because of their outstanding properties, MOFs are used in a variety of promising applications in the fields of adsorption, drug delivery, catalysis, membranes, etc. With its special structure, functional groups, high surface area, and exceptional pore volume, one of the main applications of such material is hydrogen storage and CO2 separation. In industry, membranes, including novel membranes utilizing MOFs, are often used extensively to perform gas separation. Currently in literature, MOF-5, which is the most representative MOF, has been successfully synthesized on membrane via secondary growth on substrates such as porous α-alumina.
In this work, MOF-5 crystals and related MOF-5/α-Al2O3 membranes were synthesized to systematically investigate the various reaction conditions. MOF-5 crystals were successfully formed at 130℃ and 21 hours via solvothermal synthesis. In order to understand the impact of reaction time, temperature and metal-to-ligand ratio on synthesizing MOF-5, several synthesis conditions were investigated. Then, synthesis of MOF-5 membranes with different temperature were also investigated. MOF-5 crystals and related MOF-5/α-Al2O3 membranes were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR）. The results of the XRD pattern showed the presence of another crystal called MOF-69c. This suggests that before pure MOF-5 can be formed, MOF-69c and intermediate phases were synthesized first. Successfully changing for the first time the synthesis temperature to 120℃, it was found that MOF-5 crystals were formed, but with the intermediate phases present. As a result of this study, the reaction time, temperature, and metal-to-ligand ratio have been found to have a vital influence on forming MOF-5. We have laid the foundation for finding the best synthesis parameters to synthesize MOF-5 on porous α-alumina. Future work will include gas permeation of various gases, both single and binary components on membrane samples using a homemade permeation setup.
