FURI | Spring 2020

Flexible MOF based Ammonia Sensor

The research question for this FURI project is to determine the effectiveness of an ammonia detecting sensor through usage of metal-organic frameworks. The metal-organic frameworks used in this project change structure when ammonia is adsorbed into the pores of the material. This change in structure causes a shift in electrical conductivity and is the method in which ammonia detection can be transduced into an observable signal. This project creates a more cost-effective and sustainable method of ammonia detection in industry.

Metal-organic frameworks display detectable changes in electrical resistance after adsorption which will allow for use in ammonia detection in industry.
