First-class accommodation: A series of coordination frameworks with different pore sizes (see structure of one; Cu blue, C gray, H white, O red) are prepared from CuII ions and carboxylate ligands of various lengths. Comparison of their sorption properties reveals that smaller pores allow higher densities of adsorbed H2, whereas larger pores allow higher maximum H2 storage capacities.
