Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) Talk and Networking Event recording, presentation, and more!

On 14 October, we hosted Dr Peyman Z. Moghadam from The University of Sheffield at our MOFs networking event. He presented his talk, High-throughput Computational Screening for MOF Materials Discovery. He spoke on how the analysis of MOFs data can support and guide the development of novel MOFs to suit specific applications like energy storage, catalysis, and CO2 sequestering. Here, you'll find materials from the event, including a recording of his presentation.

Dr Moghadam joined the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield in November 2018 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to joining Sheffield, Peyman was a senior research associate and the head of the computational group at the Adsorption and Advanced Materials Lab at the University of Cambridge for three years. There he worked with Shell on developing MOF adsorbent materials for natural gas storage. He is also co-author of the following papers:

Here’s a recording of his talk, High-throughput Computational Screening for MOF Materials Discovery, along with key links to additional MOFs materials discussed during the presentation.
