In this project we intend to investigate hydrogen storage in some selected MOFs. The objective are:- To investigate the performance of different structures- To use artificial intelligence methods (such as, genetic ant ANT algorithms) to screen good candidate structures- To combine different techniques to address aspects at different scales (ab initio for small structures, monte carlo and molecular dynamics for large structures andmacroscale models with finite elements methods)
