Structural parameters of a row of coordination polymers gradually varied depending on the temperature or size of solvent molecules in the voids. This can be considered as a model of changes occurring at desolvation of the polymers or adsorption of guests. Sorption capacity of these compounds is of the order methanol < ethanol < n-hexane < n-octane. This is consistent with hydrophobic channels.
