Enhanced Stability of Metal-Organic Frameworks using Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition

Metal organic frameworks are a leading class of porous materials for a wide variety of applications, such as gas storage, separations, catalysis, and even toxic gas removal. However, many MOFs that are highly active towards toxic chemicals are prone to decomposition due to moisture. Many efforts have focused on developing MOFs that are air-stable and water-stable so they can survive harsh field environments.
