Abstract

A primitive cubic (pcu) network of formula [Ni(1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)acetylene)2(Cr2O7)]n, DICRO-2-Ni-i, has been synthesised and found to exhibit a novel type of inclined 2-fold interpenetration and an isosteric heat of adsorption (Qst) of 30.5 kJ mol−1 towards CO2 at zero loading. Qst is relatively high in the broad context but less than that observed in related hybrid ultramicroporous materials, a feature that can be understood after studying pore structure and molecular simulations of CO2 adsorption.
