2011_04/2011Water Adsorption Characteristics of MIL-101 for Heat-Transformation Applications of MOFs (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 4/2011)

The cover picture shows how the evaporation of water vapor driven by the adsorption into an empty MOF-sorbent generates useful cooling (for air-conditioning) and useful heat of adsorption. The principle is demonstrated in the right half of the picture. The infrared photograph in the lower right part visualizes the different temperature levels after opening the manual valve with cooling to 5 °C of the water container and heating to 45 °C of the sorbent material. The empty MOF can be regenerated in minute intervals, preferably by solar heat. Details for MIL-101, which adsorbs 1 g of water per gram of MOF, are discussed in the Short Communication by J. Ehrenmann, S. Henninger and C. Janiak on p. 471 ff.
