Synthesis of Metal-Organic Framework nanoparticles and mixed-matrix membrane preparation for gas separation and CO2 capture

Abstract : CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is of high economical and societal interest. CO2/N2 andH2/CO2 separations are able to limit atmospheric CO2 emissions produced by industrial exhausts andmembranes present numerous economical and practical advantages. Polymer membranes are easy toprocess and possess interesting mechanical properties. However, there is a trade-off to make betweenpermeability and selectivity. Mixed-matrix membranes (MMM) based on MOFs (porous crystallinehybrid materials) have been proposed to boost the performances of polymer membranes for CO2capture. In comparison to other inorganic porous materials, one may expect that the compatibilitybetween MOFs and polymers is enhanced due to the hybrid character of MOFs.In this work, porous water stable polycarboxylate MOFs based on Fe3+ and Al3+ with promisingproperties for CO2 adsorption were synthesized for large-scale production using water as the mainsolvent. Two new porous polycarboxylate Fe3+ MOF bearing free -COOH groups in the frameworkwere obtained at room temperature as nanoparticles. The crystallographic structure of one of thesematerials was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. A second part of the thesis was devotedto the synthesis of MOFs nanoparticles with good yield. We focused our attention on the control of thediameter and morphology of MIL-96(Al) nanoparticles. This study led to the preparation of MMMsbased on MIL-96(Al) with promising properties for CO2/N2 separation. Finally, the compatibilitybetween MOF particles and polymers was studied for two systems (ZIF-8/PIM-1 and ZIF-8/PVOH),showing the influence of the surface chemistry of MOFs and the physico-chemical properties ofpolymer on the matching between MOFs and polymers.
