Introduction of cavities up to 4 nm into a hierarchically-assembled metal–organic framework using an angular, tetratopic ligand Academic Article uri icon


  • Cavities up to 4 nm have been introduced into a hierarchically-assembled metal-organic framework by adopting an angular, semi-flexible tetratopic ligand. The resulting MOF possesses permanent porosity and exhibits stepwise sorption isotherms for O(2) and N(2) gases.
