Improving adsorption cooling thanks to MOFs

Metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds are porous crystalline materials composed of metal ions or metal clusters bridged by organic linking groups; they have outstanding adsorption properties, allowing for better efficiency and use on a larger scale.
Adsorption cooling systems offer substantial energy and environmental advantages as they can be activated by low-grade thermal energy and, depending on application, and can use water as a refrigerant. However, the systems tend to be large and heavy, relying on common sorbents such as silica gel and ...
