Metal-organic frameworks, one emerging class of solid nanoporous materials, have unique chemistries in gas storage, gas separation, catalysis, and many other fields. The goal of this work is to develop new MOFs for reactions and separations. Two metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) were investigated to 1) synthesize formaldehyde from syngas as a heterolytic catalyst, 2) separate the paraffin from the olefin-paraffin mixture.
