TAMUT Professor Dr. Greg Hogan Published in Journal of Molecular Structure

Published: June 26, 2019

Texas A&M University-Texarkana Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dr. Greg Hogan was recently published in the Journal of Molecular Structure. His article, “Inclusion of alkyl alcohol guest molecules into a copper (II)-based hydrogen-bonded metal-organic framework” is derived from his research involving flexible, thermally stable hydrogen-bonded frameworks.

These frameworks allow for the introduction of guest molecules, but because they are thermally stable the guest molecule can be removed, keeping the host framework intact. While the research is being completed at the molecular level, on a larger scale these compounds could eventually play a role in mitigating the environmental damage caused when oil or toxic chemicals are spilled. In theory, the frameworks developed within the compounds could capture or trap the guest molecules and enable them to be released without damaging the host framework, which could then be reused.

The full article is available online at https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022286019307367?fbclid=IwAR0M-7OSf1exG4x-xCCiEosfpfwMUHl_781CpWLeMAtHUQm6BDzykvksybA.

Dr. Hogan was assisted in his research by students Gavin J. Beach, Betrand N. Besong, and Chemistry Lab Coordinator Christina Hogan.
