|発行||France Innovation Scientifique et Transfert (FIST SA)||商品コード||342304|
当レポートでは、金属有機構造体 (MOF) の1990年以降の特許出願動向について調査し、代表的な出願人による特許ポートフォリオ、複数の出願人による共同出願の動向、特許取得率の分析、ポートフォリオのメインクレーム・用途・金属など各種区分別のマッピングなどをまとめています。
FIST SA, subsidiary of the CNRS and Bpifrance, has developed a large expertise in Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) due to the representativeness of CNRS's portfolio in this technological field. Indeed, these materials having outstanding physico-chemical properties are no longer an academic area of research but now present concrete industrial applications. Such observation explains the increasing interest shown by both academic and industrial communities. Since the key patent of Omar Yaghi in 1995, the intellectual property became more and more complex and strategic. That is why this IP Competitive Landscape presents all the patents filed from 1990 where Metal-Organic Frameworks are considered.
To help the understanding of this dynamic technological environment, this study proposes a multiple-scale breakdown of the portfolio. Firstly, patents are categorized according to the main claim of the patent and the described application(s). A second breakdown based on technological aspects focuses on the different processes of synthesis, the nature of metals and ligands and the reference to a prominent MOF category.
Both breakdowns are studied in different levels. Firstly, a global analysis of the selection of patents (1277 patents and patent applications) is proposed. Then, a focus is done for specific players, chosen according to their important patent portfolio, regional leadership and/or market position. These specific actors are BASF (DE), the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology, the US Government (mainly the US Department of Energy), the University of California, Honeywell (US), the University of Michigan and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (FR). These breakdowns allow to identify the positioning of players and enhance your competitive intelligence in this technological field.
Additional features of this study include a granting rate analysis in the United States, Europe and Japan; main co-filings between inventors or applicants and several maps of priority filings and extensions to better understand particular strategies of protection.
In this promising technological field where more than 1,200 patents families have been filed since the 1990s, this « IP Overview - Metal-Organic Frameworks - 2015 » will help you to:
N.B.: A three months access to the full patent database is also included.
Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are hybrid inorganic-organic materials comprising metal ions and organic ligands coordinated to said metal ions. Their high surface area values (1000 up to 10.000 m2/g) exceed classical zeolites and active carbons; making them ideal candidates for various industrial applications ranging from gas storage to chemical catalysis.
