Adsorption cooling using metal-organic frameworks: Insights from molecular simulations

Haoyuan Chen, Randall Q. Snurr

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The potential of MOFs as high-capacity adsorbents in adsorption cooling systems was demonstrated using ethanol and hydrocarbon as refrigerants. The effect of MOF topology and pore size on the cooling capacity was investigated, which can be used as design rules. Molecular simulations provided a clear picture for better understanding of the microscopic adsorption mechanism.
