Equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations were performed to calculate self, corrected, and transport diffusivities of H2 in the metal-organic frameworks NU-100 and UiO-68 with varying numbers of Mg alkoxide functionalizations per organic linker at 243 K. Preferred hydrogen siting locations, as well as H2-H2 radial distribution functions were calculated. Increasing functionalization leads to a decrease in the diffusivity values, especially at low hydrogen loadings. Although the functionalization effects on the mobility of hydrogen molecules are appreciable, diffusivity values are still large in all cases.
