Metal organic frameworks (or MOFs for short) have made a big splash

These architecturally beautiful and often simple structures are composed of inorganic corners and organic struts or spanners. One can think of them as molecular tinker-toys.

Biocompatible Iron (III) Carboxylate MOF – KRICT F100 (F-Free Form of MIL-100(Fe))
Strem no: 27-0400 CAS: 10210-68-1

These hybrid materials have displayed very promising properties as gas storage materials. The number of applications and uses of these materials is rapidly growing. One such exciting application is the use of the very large surface areas present in MOFs to act as pores able to store drug materials and deliver these in vivo. One such Strem product has displayed such promise. KRICT F100 is a fluoride free version of an early now classical MOF first synthesized at the Lavoisier Institute in France. KRICT F100 is a biocompatible iron-based material available in hydrated or dehydrated form.
Strem offers metal carbonyls, metal carbonyl derivatives and has the capacity to conduct hydrogenation processes
In 1964, Strem Chemicals, Inc. began manufacturing metal carbonyls and metal carbonyl derivatives utilizing two, stainless steel, high pressure reactors. The units were eventually used for other high pressure reactions, such as hydrogenations. Today Strem operates six reactors from 1 liter to 25 gallon capacity, operating at a maximum of 5,000 psig and 650 degrees Fahrenheit.
Given the drastic temperatures and pressures, safety was of unquestionable importance. The safety program developed for these operations was eventually expanded to include all aspects of production at Strem Chemicals. The reactors are enclosed in high pressure cubicles constructed from 18 to 24 inch reinforced high strength concrete, on five sides. The sixth side serves as the entryway to the high pressure reactors and as an emergency blowout wall during operation. All operating controls are in a separate laboratory providing complete physical isolation of the reactors from operators. Carbon monoxide air monitoring devices are in each of the cubicles to ensure that no hazardous atmosphere exists in these areas during operation. All reactions in the reactors are monitored by two independent computer systems with data retention, and are alarmed to provide emergency cooling in the event of out of tolerance temperatures or pressures.
