Liquid/vapor-induced reversible dynamic structural transformation of a three-dimensional Cu-based MOF to a one-dimensional MOF showing gate adsorption

Abstract

A new 3D metal–organic framework (MOF), in which 2D layers are interlaced to form a 3D architecture, was synthesized by a reaction of Cu(BF4)2 and 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane (bpp) in a water/1-hexanol solvent system, and the crystal structure of the MOF was successfully solved. The MOF is reversibly transformed to a 1D chain MOF, which shows gate adsorption properties. The dynamic transformation gives crystal size reduction resulting in a slight change in CO2 adsorption isotherms. The 1D MOF shows selective adsorption/separation properties on benzene and its analogues with similar sizes and shapes (benzene, toluene, and cyclohexane).
