Unravelling the water adsorption in a robust iron carboxylate metal–organic framework†
A Fe-MOF was obtained from aqueous solution in high yield under reflux. The water sorption properties were studied by powder X-ray diffraction, volumetric and gravimetric sorption experiments and molecular simulations. The subsequent filling of hydrophobic and hydrophilic pores as well as the stability of the material are demonstrated.
