Australian Synchrotron user Matthew Hill, from CSIRO’s Materials Science and Engineering division, is one of six early-career researchers to receive a Victoria Fellowship 2010 from the Victorian Government.

Matthew received the fellowship in recognition of his work with metal organic frameworks (MOFs), which exhibit exceptional room temperature storage of hydrogen and methane gaseous fuels. A promising technology for carbon capture, MOFs have the potential to make a major contribution to reducing emissions from power generation in Victoria.

Matthew’s fellowship will enable him to work with a top chemical engineering group at the University of Minnesota, USA, to further develop these MOFs.
