A new strategy has been developed to measure cross-correlation rates with much enhanced accuracy. The method relies on the use of four complementary experiments. Errors due to pulse miscalibration and to uncontrolled attenuation factors associated with relaxation are cancelled out. Problems due to violations of the secular approximation are greatly(More)
Hydrogen chloride gas (HCl) is absorbed (and reversibly released) by a nonporous crystalline solid, [CuCl2(3-Clpy)2] (3-Clpy = 3-chloropyridine), under ambient conditions leading to conversion from the blue coordination compound to the yellow salt (3-ClpyH)2[CuCl4]. These reactions require substantial motions within the crystalline solid including a change(More)
Responsive materials for which physical or chemical properties can be tuned by applying an external stimulus are attracting considerable interest in view of their potential applications as chemical switches or molecular sensors. A potential source of such materials is metal-organic frameworks. These porous coordination polymers permit the physisorption of(More)
Discrimination between different gases is an essential aspect for industrial and environmental applications involving sensing and separation. Several classes of porous materials have been used in this context, including zeolites and more recently MOFs. However, to reach high selectivities for the separation of gas mixtures is a challenging task that often(More)

Layered gadolinium hydroxides have revealed to be excellent candidates for cryogenic magnetic refrigeration. These materials behave as pure 2D magnetic systems with a Heisenberg-Ising critical crossover, induced by dipolar interactions. This 2D character and the possibility offered by these materials to be delaminated open the possibility of rapid heat(More)
The restacking of charged TaS2 nanosheets with molecular counterparts has so far allowed for the combination of superconductivity with a manifold of other molecule-intrinsic properties. Yet, a hybrid compound that blends superconductivity with spin crossover switching has still not been reported. Here we continue to exploit the solid-state/molecule-based(More)
