Reversible water uptake by a stable imine-based porous organic cage

Author affiliations

Abstract

A crystalline porous organic cage molecule, CC3, is shown to adsorb up to 20.1 wt% water reversibly. This was confirmed by both gravimetric sorption and by crystallographic analysis. Crystals of CC3 are stable in boiling water for at least 4 h. The surprising chemical and supramolecular stability of these imine-based molecular crystals suggests scope for practical applications in humid environments.
