Splits MOFs into metal nodes and linkers.

Project description

Tests PyPI PyPI - Python Version PyPI - License Documentation Status Code style: black

💪 Getting Started

mof = MOF.from_cif('tests/test_files/HKUST-1.cif')

Fragment the MOF

fragments = mof.fragment()

If you are in a Jupyter notebook you can visualize the components.


You can also search PubChem for the building blocks


To get the RCSR code run


🚀 Installation

To install the latest release run

pip install moffragmentor

To install the development version run

pip install git+

You need to have openbabel installed which you can install with conda install -c conda-forge openbabel.

As a utility, you can also run bash to create a conda environment with all dependencies. Note that you might want to change the name of the name of the environment (defaults to moffragmentor).

moffragmentor in the MOF decomposition tool landscape

While moffragmentor has some unique features, it might not be the right tool for your task. Due to some design choices (having a pymatgen representation of all fragments and the net) it is relatively slow in the current implementation (though there are obvious ways for fixing this).

Therefore, we encourage you to also consider alternative tools:
