We are pleased to share the news of having secured a United States Patent No. 10,001,448 on June 19, 2018 and titled 
GAS SENSOR. This patent addresses the usage of capacitive gas sensors using Metal Organics Frame works as the sensing material. This is the result of a 7 year collaboration with Prof. Eddoaudi's group at the Advanced Membranes and Porus Materials Center. We have demonstrated that the technology is capable of detecting or various gases with a high degree of selectivity and sensitivity .
