  • Patent number: 10597408
    Abstract: The disclosure provides for covalent organic frameworks (COFs) that constructed from weaving a plurality of long organic threads together. In particular, the disclosure provides for the construction of woven COFS, where long organic strands are connected together in a woven pattern using organic ligands/complexes that when orientated in certain geometries are capable of reversibly binding metal ions.

  • Publication number: 20190234053
    Abstract: A water-harvesting system can operate with a material that can take up and release water with minimum energy requirements and powered by low-grade energy sources, such as sunlight, in order to potentially allow its deployment into households, especially those located in sunny regions. A water-harvesting method and system can include vapor adsorption using a porous metal-organic framework. In certain embodiments, the porous metal-organic framework can include metal-organic framework in ambient air with low relative humidity, typical of the levels found in most dry regions of the world.
