Company Profile

Crystallize the future

TEKMOF utilizes unique Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF) developed through kinetic-controlled design principles to solve challenges across all sciences and industries dealing with molecules. MOF is crystalline material with cavities that interact with various molecules.


The MOFs we've created, with their strong interactivity, enable high-level molecular trapping functions, allowing unprecedented capabilities in guest adsorption and molecular structure determination.


TEKMOF leverages its proprietary MOF design technology to accelerate innovation in pharmaceuticals, food, environment, energy, and other fields.
