Unprecedented activation and CO2 capture properties of an elastic single-molecule trap. Academic Article uri icon


  • The activation and CO2 capture properties of a microporous metal-organic framework with elastic single-molecule traps were systematically investigated. This material shows a unique low-energy gas-purge activation capability, high CO2 adsorption selectivities over various gases and optimized working capacities per energy of 2.9 mmol kJ(-1) at 128 C.
