NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing Research Assistant – Trabolsi Research Group in United States

RESEARCH PROJECT TITLE: SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF POROUS MATERIALS FOR STORAGE AND SENSING

FACULTY NAME & TITLE: ALI TRABOLSI, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF CHEMISTRY

RESEARCH PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

During the past decade, much attention has been devoted to the design and preparation of multidimensional coordination polymers due to their desirable physical and chemical properties and wide range of potential applications. Self-assembled coordination polymers have been of particular interest due to the ease of their preparation, and structural modification various functionalities. The proposed research project aims at synthesizing organic building blocks for the ultimate preparation of covalent organic polymers (COPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).

RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE POSITION

• Synthesis and Characterization of organic building blocks for the synthesis of porous materials metal-organic frameworks
