Rapid and enhanced activation of microporous coordination polymers by flowing supercritical CO2

Author affiliations

Abstract

Flowing supercritical CO2 was used to activate a cross section of microporous coordination polymers (MCPs) directly from DMF, thus avoiding exchange with a volatile solvent. Most MCPs displayed exceptional surface areas directly after treatment although those with coordinatively unsaturated metals benefit from heating. The method presents an advance in efficiency of activation and quality of material obtained.
