A microporous metal–organic framework with naphthalene diimide groups for high methane storage

Author affiliations

Abstract

We reported a microporous MOF FJU-101 with open naphthalene diimide functional groups for room temperature (RT) high methane storage. At RT and 65 bar, the total volumetric CH4 storage capacity of 212 cm3 (STP) cm−3 of FJU-101a is significantly higher than those of the isoreticular MFM-130a and UTSA-40a. The enhanced methane uptake in FJU-101a is attributed to the polar carbonyl sites, which can generate strong electrostatic interactions with CH4 molecules.
