Researchers Dr Cara Doherty;
Brief description This project will produce three-dimensional porous structures for use in sensing devices and biomedical implants. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are versatile ultra high surface area materials with controllable pore size, chemical properties and functionalisation. These new materials will be incorporated into portable biosensing devices which are highly sensitive and reliable. The project involves three streams including preparation of the three-dimensional metal scaffolds utilizing state-of-the-art direct manufacturing technologies; integration of MOFs on the three-dimensional metal scaffolds using the metallic structure as the source of the MOF metal ions; and incorporation of bio-active molecules into the three-dimensional hierarchically porous structure for the purpose of bio-device fabrication.
