The metal-organic framework (MOF) is a nanoporous crystalline hybrid material made by metallic clusters and organic ligands. MOF series of materials represents an important source of promising candidates for various applications such as adsorption, separation and storage of gases, catalysis, proton conductors, among others. They present high porosity and internal surface area that allows to store a high amount of adsorbate per unit volume of adsorbent. The innumerable possibilities of combining inorganic elements or cations with organic ligands has led to the almost exponential emergence of new MOF materials in the last decade. This abundance of structures requires powerful computational tools, rather than experimental trial and error to be used for high-throughput screening. The BEPE project aims to use a novel computational methodology for large-scale screening of MOFs for storage and separation applications. Big-data analysis techniques combining with molecular simulations will be employed. (AU)
