Radionuclides are essential in nuclear medicine and therefore new and improved production methods continue to play an important role in ensuring sustainable availability. This thesis focuses on the production of two radionuclides (99mTc and 51Cr) using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are novel porous materials and their potential to be utilized in radionuclide production has been explored for the first time in this thesis. Chapter 1 gives a general introduction to the current production of 99mTc and 51Cr, and emphasizes the role that metal-organic frameworks can play based on their attractive properties.
