A Large-Surface-Area Boracite-Network-Topology Porous MOF Constructed from a Conjugated Ligand Exhibiting a High Hydrogen Uptake Capacity Academic Article uri icon


  • A new porous metal-organic framework, PCN-20 with a twisted boracite net topology, was constructed based on a highly conjugated planar tricarboxylate ligand; PCN-20 possesses a large Langmuir surface area of over 4200 m(2)/g as well as demonstrates a high hydrogen uptake capacity of 6.2 wt % at 77 K and 50 bar.
