Facile xenon capture and release at room temperature using a metal–organic framework: a comparison with activated charcoal

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two well-known metal–organic frameworks (MOF-5, NiDOBDC) were synthesized and studied for facile xenon capture and separation. Our results indicate that NiDOBDC adsorbs significantly more xenon than MOF-5, and is more selective for xenon over krypton than activated carbon.
