• Humidity pump is a device that can transport moisture through the inverse gradient of vapor concentration, i.e., the vapor can be transferred from a relatively low-humidity space to a high-humidity space. A novel humidity pump based on Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) was invented by DTU building physics group.

Metal-organic Frameworks (MOFs) for building applications

MOFs are an emerging class of porous materials. Most MOFs can exhibit very high surface areas and large adsorption capacity for gas. Due to their structural and functional tunability, MOFs have become one of the most fascinating classes of materials for both scientists and engineers. In the area of built environment, MOFs can be used for indoor moisture regulation, pollutant removal, air purification, and thermal storage, etc. Qin's group has been working on these topics since 2016.
