Abstract

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.
