Prof. Dr Stefan Kaskel

// studied chemistry at the University of Tübingen, where he also obtained his doctorate in 1997

// This was followed by postdoctoral work in the Ames Laboratory at Iowa State University under John Corbett. He then worked as a principal investigator in the field of developing new porous materials at the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung under the directorship of Ferdi Schüth

// After receiving his professorial teaching qualification at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 2004, he accepted a C4-grade professorship in inorganic chemistry at TU Dresden in the same year

// Since 2008, he has divided his time between this position and management of the Chemical Surface and Reaction Technology business unit at Fraunhofer IWS in Dresden

// His primary research interests are in the fields of porous materials (MOFs, carbon materials, mesoporous materials, zeoliths), nanomaterials, battery materials (with a focus on the field of lithium-sulfur batteries) and coating technologies

// At Fraunhofer IWS, development work also includes plasma technologies, CVD systems, and roll-to-roll production methods

Metal-organic frameworks: record-breakers in porosity

The search for endless emptiness - von Prof. Dr Stefan Kaskel

In recent years, metal-organic frameworks have been setting one record after another in relation to specific surface area, with over 7,000m2/g now being achievable. Their modular construction and the large number of functionalities that can be built into the lattice make them both interesting and highly promising for a wide variety of applications.
