Upon invitation, Prof. Michael O'Keeffe provides a school/workshop titled, "Nets, Tilings, Topological Crystal Chemistry and Designed Synthesis of Porous Materials," to research groups around the world. This school/workshop covers:

  • Designed Synthesis and Applications of Microporous Materials
  • Introduction to Graph Theory and its Application to Crystal Nets
  • Introduction to Tiling Theory and its Application to Crystal Nets
  • Enumeration and Classification of Crystal Nets
  • Towards a Taxonomy of MOF Structures
  • Some Notes on Symmetry Groups

This school/workshop has strengthened the global science network immensely and has provided educational and professional growth to research groups in China, Saudi Arabia, Korea, and Sweden.
