We will investigate structural and mechanical properties of some MOFs (Metal-Organic Frameworks). In particular, we will address the problem of MOF hydrogen storage. We will also investigate Nafion/graphene interfaces for fuel cell applications. These investigations will be carried out through molecular dynamics simulations and ab initio (DFT) calculations. (AU)
