Abstract:

MAXDEM INC. PROPOSES TO SYNTHESIZE A NEW CLASS OF TRANSITIONMETAL COMPLEXES WITH A ZEOLYTIC STRUCTURE, DESIGNED FOR THE RAPID AND REVERSIBLE ABSORPTION OF GASES. THESE NEW MATERIALS ARE INTENDED TO FUNCTION AS THE SORBANT IN HIGHLY EFFICIENT SELF-CONTAINED OXYGEN GENERATING SYSTEMS. POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS INCLUDE OXYGEN FOR MEDICAL USE AND FOR USE IN WELDING AND METAL CUTTING. THE POROUS STRUCTURE NECESSARY RESULTS FROM NOVEL POLYDENTATE LIGANDS WHICH RESTRICT POSSIBLE GEOMETRIES TO THOSE WITH MOLECULAR VOIDS AND CHANNELS. THESE NEW MATERIALS OFFER A UNIQUE SOLUTION TO THE OBJECTIVE OF COMBINING THE PROPERTIES OF MOLECULAR SIEVE ZEOLITES AND CHEMICALLY VERSATILE TRANSITIONMETALS.
