A stepwise transition from microporosity to mesoporosity in metal–organic frameworks by thermal treatment Academic Article uri icon


  • A Cd MOF with twisted partially augmented the net was synthesized. Activation at increasing temperatures revealed an unprecedented stepwise transition from microporosity to mesoporosity. This thermal treatment may serve as an alternative approach for the preparation of mesoporous MOFs. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
