Combined Interfacial and Solvothermal Synthesis to Study the MOF Growth Process

Solvothermal synthesis is a method of producing chemical compounds and is commonly applied to synthesize metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are a class of crystalline porous materials with the traits of gas storage, separation and catalysis. Research on these crystal structures require a lot of trial-and-error, however; there are over 60,000 MOF structures discovered and many have not been researched for their potential uses. The goal of this research is to develop a machining learning code coupled with text mining code to search the desired properties by reading the literature and extracting excerpts with the keywords.
