Outline

Nano-porous materials such as zeolites and porous coordination polymers are promising materials for selective storage, transport, chemical separation and conversion. Molecular-scale understanding of the interactions between guest molecules and nano-spaces is absolutely essential for design and control of hyper-nano-spaces. This project aims to develop a novel atomic force microscopy technique for direct measurement of atomic-scale interactions between guest molecules and nano-spaces in real space. The AFM technique will provide novel insights into the selective adsorption mechanism of guest molecules on nano-space materials.
