Who is ACSYNAM?

Our Technology

The eco-responsible and large-scale manufacture of MOFs

Our technology of MOF manufacture enables the replacement of toxic or flammable organic solvents with carbon dioxide gas in its high pressure form, also known as supercritical CO2 (sCO2). Thus, virtually eliminating the superfluous liquid waste associated with previous processes. While cleaner, our technology is also highly adaptable compared to alternative processes. The use of sCO2, an extremely versatile reaction media, allows high tunability of the reaction conditions (temperature and pressure), enabling the production of materials with high chemical and structural diversity. Such versatility was previously achieved through extensive input of mechanical energy or heat. This allows for simple and highly efficient manufacture of various MOFs, replacing the use of toxic and corrosive metal salts with environmentally benign starting materials that are not compatible with conventional methods.
