The 5th WPI-AIMR Joint Seminar in FY2016


Solid State Ionics and Glass Science of Molecular-based Framework Materials


Dr. Satoshi Horike
(Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University)


Octorber 28 (Fri), 2016 14:30-15:30


Seminar Room, 2nd floor, WPI-AIMR Main Bldg.


In a last few decades, molecular scientists have synthesized various solid state extended architectures. One of the class of such materials is so-called Metal Organic Framework: MOF, constructed from metal ions and their bridging molecules (Figure).
Our interests are stemmed from the control of molecular motion in the MOF crystals for ion transporting property and energy application, and from the control of disorder in the frameworks to create unique inorganic/organic hybridized liquid and glass. Recent results related to these topics will be discusses.
