Methane storage in porous materials is one of the hot issues because it can replace dangerous high-pressure compressed natural gas (CNG) tanks in natural gas vehicles. Among the diverse adsorbents, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are considered to be promising due to their extremely high surface areas and low crystal densities. Molecular simulation has been considered as an important tool for finding an appropriate MOF for methane storage. We review several important roles of molecular modeling for the studies of methane adsorption in MOFs.
