Research Areas

Dr. Wriedt’s research activities are mainly focused on the development of new strategies for the design and synthesis of advanced functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of their structure-property relationships.

His group at UT Dallas works towards the development and characterization of new metal-organic framework (MOF) and porous organic polymers (POP) materials whose applications address some of our society’s most challenging energy, health and environmental needs, for example:

  • Clean Energy Alternatives: Adsorptive materials for on-board hydrogen and methane storage systems for automotive applications
  • Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Adsorptive materials for carbon capture and sequestration from flue gas streams
  • Stimuli-Responsive Spintronics: Materials for ultra-high information data storage applications
  • Environmental Water Treatment: Adsorptive materials for selective removal, sensing, and destruction of emerging pollutants (e.g., PFAS) from waste- and groundwater
  • Electro- and Photochromic Switches: Materials for the development of new smart-glass/window technologies
  • Drug Delivery: Release and/or stabilization of active molecules through controlled stimuli
