Spring-like motion caused large anisotropic thermal expansion in nonporous M(eim)2 (M = Zn, Cd)

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two nonporous coordination polymers were found to possess large anisotropic thermal expansion, which was derived from the flexible structures. A “spring-like” thermal motion was proposed to illustrate the mechanism. Compound Cd(eim)2 (eim = 2-ethylimidazole) possesses large linear and reversible thermal expansion properties and the emission intensity shows a linear decrease with temperature, making it a candidate for thermo-responsive materials.
