Thermosensitive gating effect and selective gas adsorption in a porous coordination nanocage Academic Article uri icon


  • A porous coordination nanocage functionalized with 24 triisopropylsilyl groups exhibits a remarkable thermosensitive gate opening phenomenon and demonstrates a molecular sieving effect at a certain temperature range, which can be used for gas separation purposes.
