Kamal gave a poster presentation at the fall MRS 2019

The immense contribution of carbon dioxide (CO2) to climate change has made CO2 capture a global priority. Current materials for CO2 capture require large energy input for regeneration and are thus not truly environment friendly. Photo-responsive metal organic frameworks (MOFs) have been investigated as a viable solution. The materials reported to date, exhibit poor CO2 selectivity & uptake. To resolve this, I am developing novel CO2 selective photoresponsive MOFs capable of high CO2 uptake coupled with facile light induced CO2 release. In this poster presentation at MRS Fall 2019 in December 2019, I presented my preliminary work with respect to the synthesis and performance of such materials.
