Every researcher dreams to see how the gas molecules are adsorbed in their porous materials. Gas Visualizer realizes that dream. With the aid of MEM, Rietveld, and PDF (Pair Distribution Function) analysis, the structure of adsorbed gas molecules can be observed experimentally. Gas Visualizer enables the identification of the adsorption sites in the pores. This information can be used for the design of a new adsorbent.
Gas Visualizer directly observes the gas molecules adsorbed in the pores of MOFs (Metal-Organic Frameworks) based on the data obtained from experiments at cutting-edge X-ray facilities including synchrotron radiation facility, SPring-8, and Aichi Synchrotron Radiation Center.
Sometimes, the use of these synchrotron radiation facilities can be challenging because of the complication in the entire procedure, starting from research proposals to experimental methods. We support our customers from the step of writing the research proposal to the final step of structure analysis.
Additionally, at SyncMOF, we are developing a technology to automate the process of structural analysis with the aid of AI and RPA.※ With this technology, our customers will be able to focus on the development of new materials without going through the trouble of solving the structure, which requires expertise and experience.
The materials design of a new era starts from the direct observation of the nanoscopic space. This technology can be used for materials other than gas adsorbents as well. This service is for every customer who has experimented at synchrotron radiation facilities. We can analyze the structure of materials other than adsorbents if requested.
Based on the consultation, we will help you select which MOF to observe.
We will determine the experimental conditions and discuss the contents of the application forms to submit to the synchrotron radiation facilities.
We will carry out the X-ray diffraction measurements under gas adsorption process.
We will analyze the obtained diffraction data and determine the refined structure. If you already have a diffraction data, let us know the experimental conditions, and we can solve the structure for you.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns about MOFs and PCPs,
property measurements, implementation steps, and estimation of the cost.
We look forward to working with you to open up the way to a new future.
