MOFapps AS
c/o Smidig Regnskapsservice ANS, P. Box 24 Tåsen, 0801 Oslo, Norway

MOFapps were founded in 2013 on the assumption that metal organic frame works are a class of  materials, so powerful in their capacity and so versatile in their application that it is a pitty that to date there was practically no industrial application after more than 10 years of research. Materials were apparently up to this point not stable enough, not mechanically robust, too expensive and production methods for larger quantities were  environmentally unfriendly.
At MOFapps we believe that MOFs can change the world: our individual mobility, the ways we deliver medication, treat wounds, store toxic gas or cool computer servers. What it takes to make this happen is to bring MOF science experts together and create an environment which allows industry partners to define their technical applications. It requires chemical engineering to design MOFs an production processes robust enough for everyday life and the spirit of entrepreneurship to make it all happen.
Today we are proud to partner with institutes and companies who offer environmentally friendly production methods, we have licenses to market and produce a full range of Zirkonium based high performance MOFs (UiO-66 and family) as well as very positive feedback from industrial feasibility tests.


Our team of experienced experts will help you to define the scope of your project and engineer the proper solution for your industrial application.

Schüth at the MPI für Kohlen-forschung. In 2001, he was appointed CNRS researcher at IRCELYON in the group of Dr. C. Mirodatos. He is currently CNRS Research Director and group leader at Lyon University/CNRS. His research activities are focused on the design of Materials for original catalytic & separation processes and on the development of High Throughput approaches for which he was awarded in 2008 by the French Chemical Society. He is the editor of a book (--> Book review MOFs) , authors of more than 50 international publications and more than 10 patents on the applications of MOFs .


Dr. Sonja Aguado, Scientific consultant

As a researcher Sonia specializes on porous materials and synthesis, she has published and contributed to multiple research papers on the subject during her various post doc positions at the CNRS Lyon, F as well as the Delft University of Technology , NL.


Prof. Francis Meunier, Chief Technology Officer

Prof. Francis Meunier joins MOFapps as Chief Technical Officer. Francis has held various positions at CNRS, France and has retired after more then 10 years as professor at CNAM in Paris. He is an expert in adsorption and heat pump technology and author of  many publications in this area. Prof Meuier is ahonorary director of the  French Institute of Industrial Chilling ( directeur honoraire de l’Institut français du froid industriel (IFFI) ). We are very happy to have him on board and can share his experience in discussions with our industrial partners.
