Abstract

A novel NbO-type MOF is reported based on a palladated organic linker, showing a remarkable gravimetric and volumetric CO2 uptake, reaching 201.8 cm3 g-1 (9.0 mmol g-1, 39.7 wt%) and 187.8 cm3 cm-3 at 273 K and 1 bar, respectively. Accurate theoretical calculations revealed that the exceptional CO2 uptake is due to the combination of Lewis base Pd(ii)-CO2 (24.3 kJ mol-1) and Lewis acid Cu(ii)-CO2 (30.3 kJ mol-1) interactions, as well as synergistic pore size effects.
