Improving the performance of a poorly adsorbing porous material: template mediated addition of microporosity to a crystalline submicroporous MOF

Author affiliations

Abstract

The presence of butanoic acid excess in the reaction media employed for the synthesis of a MOF with formula [Cu23-ade)22-OOC(CH2)2CH3)2]n (ade: adeninate) leads to the formation of micelles that exert a template effect and provide a pronounced increase of its microporosity, doubling the intrinsic adsorption capacity of the pristine crystal network.
