An interpenetrated framework material with hysteretic CO2 uptake

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

189 Scopus citations


A new, twofold interpenetrated metal-organic framework (MOF) material has been synthesized that demonstrates dramatic steps in the adsorption and hysteresis in the desorption of CO2. Measurement of the structure by powder X- ray diffraction (PXRD) and pair distribution function (PDF) analysis indicates that structural changes upon CO2 sorption most likely involve the interpenetrated frameworks moving with respect to each other.
