Porous materials with optimal adsorption thermodynamics and kinetics for CO2 separation
A crystal engineering or reticular chemistry strategy that controls pore functionality and size in a series of MOMs with coordinately saturated metal centres and periodically arrayed hexafluorosilicate anions enables a ‘sweet spot’ of kinetics and thermodynamics that offers high volumetric uptake at low CO2 partial pressure (less than 0.15 bar).
Targeted synthesis of a porous aromatic framework with high stability and exceptionally high surface area.
A strategy is presented that has enabled the synthesis and properties of a porous aromatic framework PAF-1, which has a Langmuir surface area of 7100 m g, and outperforms highly porous MOFs in thermal and hydrothermal stabilities.

These results provide for the first time direct structural evidence demonstrating that optimal pore size (around 6 A, twice the kinetic diameter of hydrogen) strengthens the interactions between H2 molecules and pore walls and increases the heat of adsorption, which thus allows for enhancing hydrogen adsorbption from the interaction between hydrogen molecules with the pore Walls.
