Foundry of Reticular Materials for Sustainability (FORMS)

Foundry of Reticular Materials for Sustainability (FORMS) is a long-term collaborative program between Universiti Putra Malaysia and the University of California, Berkeley, America. The program focuses on research involving the synthesis and application of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOF applications include, but are not limited to materials science and technology, biosystems and biotechnology, agriculture, water, veterinary and animal science, energy, health and medicine.

The laboratory focuses on synthesis of MOFs and can be divided into general and Post-synthetic Modification. General synthesis method includes study of MOFs developed from the study of zeolite. Except for the use of preformed ligands, MOFs and zeolites are produced almost exclusively by hydrothermal or solvothermal techniques, where crystals are slowly grown from a hot solution. In contrast with zeolites, MOFs are constructed from bridging organic ligands that remain intact throughout the synthesis. Post-synthetic Modification method cover ligand exchange, metal exchange, stratified synthesis and open coordinate sites.
