Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Catalysis
  • Oxygen

His primary areas of investigation include Metal-organic framework, Nanotechnology, Inorganic chemistry, Catalysis and Chemical engineering. His Metal-organic framework study improves the overall literature in Adsorption. His Nanotechnology research incorporates elements of Porosity, Microporous material, Optoelectronics and Porphyrin.

His studies deal with areas such as Carboxylate, Metal, Carborane, Methane and Isostructural as well as Inorganic chemistry. When carried out as part of a general Catalysis research project, his work on Heterogeneous catalysis is frequently linked to work in Homogeneous, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His work deals with themes such as Desorption, Powder diffraction, Sorption and Atomic layer deposition, which intersect with Chemical engineering.

His most cited work include:

  • Metal–organic framework materials as catalysts (5531 citations)
  • Metal–Organic Framework Materials as Chemical Sensors (4506 citations)
  • Imparting functionality to a metal–organic framework material by controlled nanoparticle encapsulation (1158 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Omar K. Farha mainly investigates Metal-organic framework, Catalysis, Chemical engineering, Inorganic chemistry and Nanotechnology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Porosity, Mesoporous material and Zirconium in addition to Metal-organic framework. His study in Catalysis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Combinatorial chemistry, Hydrolysis and Polymer chemistry.

His Inorganic chemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Metal and Atomic layer deposition. He has included themes like Porphyrin, Molecule and Porous medium in his Nanotechnology study. His work on Ligand as part of general Organic chemistry study is frequently connected to Linker, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
