A research team from the Department of Chemistry at the College of Science at the University of the United Arab Emirates, led by Dr. Ahmed Al-Jamili, worked to create the first organic structure of the hexagonal metal manganese.UAEU-50The process of reacting carbon dioxide with epoxides by photosynthesis to obtain raw materials used in different industries. This achievement was published in the journal. ACS Omega Science Weekly Magazine is published by the American Chemists Association. American Chemical SocietyDr. Ahmed Al-Jamili, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry, said: “I am pleased to announce the release of our first MOF.”UAEU-50In a magazine ACS Omega.

I would also like to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to the University Leadership and Research Center for their great support and generous funding. We look forward to creating more unique MOFs in the UAEU in the future.

He explained that the goal of this compound is to convert carbon dioxide, which is harmful to the environment, into ingredients that can be used as inputs in industrial production.

Research activities have shown positive results from their inception, indicating better thermal and chemical stability. UAEU-50 Good candidate for catalytic reaction in visible light zone.

The study also revealed the ability to convert 90% of carbon dioxide into circulating carbonates through the process of absorption in the visible light region.
