General description

Basolite (TM) A100 is also known as MIL-53(Al). It is an ultramicroporous metal framework (MOF).
Basolite®A100 is a microporous metal-organic framework (MOF), which consists of three-dimensional networks with micropores up to 900 pm in diameter. It has characteristics that are identical to MIL-53(Al) as it contains octahedral AlO4(OH)2 units connected through 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate ligands. It allows the formation of a framework with a high specific surface of 1084 m2g-1 area and a pore volume of about 0.51 cm2g-1.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

Basolite (TM) A100 was used in the separation of C8-alkylaromatic compounds.
Basolite®A100 is majorly used in the binary gas separation of CO2/CH4 and CO2/N2. It can also be used for gas adsorption (hydrogen gas) and for the supercritical adsorption of CO2.
