     Microporous materials with high water uptake capacity are gaining attention for low temperature heat transformation applications in thermally driven adsorption chillers (TDCs) or adsorption heat pumps (AHPs). TDCs or AHPs are an alternative to traditional air conditioners or heat pumps operating on electricity or fossil fuels. By using solar or waste heat as the driving energy, TDCs or AHPs can minimize primary energy consumption. Here we briefly summarize current investigations, developments and possibilities of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) compared to classical materials. Moreover, we present the use of ionic liquids (ILs) as templates for the synthesis and catalytic application of stable "naked" metal nanoparticles without the need of additional stabilizers, including their deposition on surfaces and quantized charging.

Wang, Yaoyu

Prof. Wang’s group has five teachers and fifteen graduate students. The research interests of the group mainly focus on the functional coordination chemistry and materials chemistry. The group has started to explore a totally new field about molecular braid, synthesized the first case of novel [4]-crossing catenane coordination polymer, and found the catalyst of decarboxylation in the in situ reaction.
