Like wringing out a sponge, a metal–organic framework loaded with structure-changing light-responsive groups can squeeze out captured CO2. Because of the groups being structurally integral, there is oscillation between native and excited states. Pairing with CO2 capture from coal-based power generation could reduce the parasitic energy load of adsorbent regeneration.
