Update 2018 “sugar-cube-size MOF (dessicant) might have an internal surface area the size of six football fields”
Since this blog is mostly about fracking and in Arlington Gasland TX we frack for Methane, I want to add this to my file since it is related to methane storage using Metal Organic Frameworks.
After working for a startup water generator company using a desiccant (water attraction/storage) to attract humidity and then applying the (heavy solar footprint) solar panels to bake the water out, I have an interest in studying the emerging technologies in desiccants and in solar panels (as well as Geothermal Deep Direct Use).
In this purely voluntary research, I ran across MOF’s aka Metal Organic Frameworks at which I found MOF’s and hybrid Perovskite. Read my previous blog to learn about Perovskite crystals.
