Research Title:
Increasing the Intrinsic Porosity of Liquids Through Coordination Chemistry

Abstract:
Porosity and fluidity are two extremely useful properties of matter that are rarely encountered together in conventional materials. Guided by coordination chemistry and thermodynamics, this research proposes the design, synthesis, and characterization of a new class of liquids that feature unprecedented intrinsic porosity. Such porous liquids will push the boundaries of the properties that can be achieved in porous materials and in liquids, affording new opportunities for the transport, storage, separation, and conversion of small molecules important to energy and health.
