FWF: Thin Film Polymorphism of Copper Based Metal-Organic Frameworks

Thin films of metal organic frameworks (MOF) are highly relevant for technological applications, however, frequently unknown thin film polymorphs are formed during the crystallization process at surfaces. This project will develop a methodology to solve crystal structures from MOF thin films by a combined experimental / theoretical approach. The main difficulty is that only a limited number of diffraction peaks will be available by X-ray diffraction techniques so that established methods cannot be used for this specific class of materials.
