Abstract

We report the mechanical properties of four isostructural metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) that adopt the ABX3 perovskite topology: [(CH3)2NH2]M(HCOO)3, where M = divalent Mn, Co, Ni, and Zn. Their Young's moduli were measured via single-crystal nanoindentation. We show that the mechanical stability of such isostructural frameworks with octahedral coordination increases with greater ligand field stabilization energy (LFSE).
