Abstract

original image

MOFs come alive: The combination of gas-adsorption experiments at various temperatures with an osmotic thermodynamic model produced a generic temperature–loading phase diagram that displays unexpected re-entrant behavior. The breathing effect in the metal–organic framework MIL-53(Al) is predicted to be general and should be observed over a limited temperature range regardless of the guest adsorbate.
