The force of MOFs: the potential of switchable metal–organic frameworks as solvent stimulated actuators

Author affiliations

Abstract

We evaluate experimentally the force exerted by flexible metal–organic frameworks through expansion for a representative model system, namely MIL-53(Al). The results obtained are compared with data collected from intrusion experiments while molecular simulations are performed to shed light on the re-opening of the guest-loaded structure. The critical impact of the transition stimulating medium on the magnitude of the expansion force is demonstrated.
