Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are compounds made up of metal ions or clusters coordinated to organic ligands. These frameworks have porous structures and thus serve as suitable candidates for gas adsorption, purification, and separation applications. This study focuses on combining MOFs with 3D printing in order to realize a component design for gas adsorption. MIL-101 (Cr), a chromium-based MOF was synthesized in-house and coated on 3D printed PETG substrate. This was further analyzed for gas adsorption behavior, through a combined experimental and modeling study. The computational model illustrates that MIL-101 (Cr) shows increased outputs in adsorption of nitrogen as pressure increases, similar to the trend observed in experiments. The model also shows promising results for carbon dioxide uptake at low pressures and hence the developed MIL-101 (Cr) based components could serve as viable candidates for gas adsorption applications.
