  • ​The research work described in this thesis concerns the synthesis, characterization, and applications of two kinds of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), Copper based MOF (Cu-MOF) and zirconium based MOF (Zr-MOF) functionalized with new linkers. ​The common thread of this research project can be summarized in three work phases: ​first, the synthesis and characterization of new organic linkers is described, followed by the presentation of the different optimization conditions for the MOFs synthesis. ​Second, the new materials were fully characterized using several complementary techniques, such as infrared (ATR-FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy, X-ray powder diffraction spectroscopy (PXRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) as well as thermal and surface area measurements. ​Final, to obtain a complete work the possible environmental applications of the new materials were explored.
