Unique Features of XEMIS

The Unique Features of XEMIS as Demonstrated by the Latest MOF Research.

In a paper published recently in Advanced Materials, the unique capabilities of the Hiden Isochema XEMIS sorption analyzer were used to investigate gas separation by a novel metal-organic framework (MOF). Such materials are candidates for selective removal of harmful sulfur dioxide (SO2) from combustion flue gases, to improve air quality and reduce the risks to human health posed by air pollution.

The article reports the uptake of N2, CO2 and SO2 over a very wide range of equilibrium pressures, from 3 mbar to 180 bar, on small (research-scale) samples of MFM-300(In), a functionalized and robust indium and carboxylate-based MOF. This work would not have been possible without the functionality, flexibility and accuracy provided by the XEMIS.

Dr Sihai Yang, Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Manchester and one of the lead authors, said: “It is very important to capture toxic flue gases for the development of a sustainable environment. MFM-300(In) has shown excellent performance in the selective adsorption of SO2, one major harmful component from flue gas. A solid collaboration between Manchester, Peking, Hiden Isochema and UK/EU/US national facilities was vital to the success of this project. ”
