Research topic: Tetrathiafulvalene-based Metal-Organic Frameworks


The doctoral research project is focused on the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) based on derivatives of tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) as ligands. Incorporation of TTF in coordination polymers leads to interesting physical and chemical properties such as redox-activity, electronic conductivity, and spin-crossover behavior.
