Breathing CO2: Efficient adsorption of CO2 in the initially very narrow pores of a metal–organic framework while other light gases are nearly excluded is reported. This leads to large CO2 separation potentials, which is demonstrated by breakthrough experiments. The breathing properties of the material are demonstrated by means of in situ XRD patterns measured during the adsorption of CO2 and CH4.
