Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Synthesis and crystal structure determination of novel lithium metal-organic frameworks
by Clough, Andrew James, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 80; 1524184
Abstract (Summary)

In this thesis, three new lithium homometallic metal-organic frameworks are discussed. An introduction to lightweight metal-organic framework is given, followed by a detailed analysis of each new structure's topology, composition, novel secondary building units, and potential for gas adsorption. Special attention is given to the formation of new lithium secondary building units and the synthetic conditions that create them. These novel secondary building units are discussed in the context of the current lithium metal-organic framework literature, and compared when appropriate to known structures. Crystallography data is also discussed, with an emphasis on the connectivity of these lithium secondary building units.
