Effect of gas pressure on negative thermal expansion in MOF-5

Author affiliations

Abstract

Powder diffraction is used to study thermal expansion properties of MOF-5 at moderate helium gas pressures: 1.7 bar (100–500 K) and 5–150 bar (150–300 K). The framework shows negative thermal expansion (NTE) at all pressures, but vibrational motions causing NTE are damped with increasing pressures, leading to decreased NTE.
