Responsive Nanospace of Porous Compounds

Responsive Nanospace of Porous Compounds

Symposium Description

Nano- or subnano-scale small molecules play important roles in various fields such as energy, material synthesis, environment and biological systems. The development of “technology” and “materials” for separation, storage and conversion of such small molecules, that is, “science for controlling the small molecules as desired” has long been sought. Porous compounds play a central role in such science because of their abilities to trap molecules in their nanospace. Recently, a new class of porous compounds with switchable properties in response to external stimuli has been developed, which is expected to open up a new dimension of the above mentioned science.
The purpose of this symposium is to address any issues concerning stimuli-responsive porous compounds including metal-organic frameworks, porous organic polymers, and other porous solids affording nanospace useful for recognition, separation, catalysis, etc. We will discuss the state-of-the-art of stimuli-responsive porous compounds and future direction of nanospace science.
