Microporous metal–organic framework with dual functionalities for highly efficient removal of acetylene from ethylene/acetylene mixtures
A microporous metal–organic framework in which the suitable pore/cage spaces preferentially take up much more acetylene than ethylene while the functional amine groups on the pore-cage surfaces further enforce their interactions with acetylene molecules, leading to its superior performance for this separation.

A Flexible Microporous Hydrogen-Bonded Organic Framework for Gas Sorption and Separation.
Powder neutron diffraction studies and theoretical calculations reveal that suitable pore sizes, curvatures, and functional sites collectively enable HOF-5a to encapsulate a high density of carbon dioxide molecules packed in a pseudo-one-dimensional array along the pore channel. Expand
A highly selective on/off fluorescence sensor for cadmium(II).
A polypyridyl ligand, 2,3,6,7,10,11-hexakis(2-p Pyridyl)dipyrazino[2,3-f:2',3'-h]quinoxaline (HPDQ), was found to have excellent fluorescent selectivity for Cd(2+) over many other metal ions based on the intramolecular charge-transfer mechanism. Expand
Fluorous Metal-Organic Frameworks with Enhanced Stability and High H2/CO2 Storage Capacities
When fluorine was introduced into the framework via the functionalization, both the framework stabilities and adsorption capacities towards H2/CO2 were enhanced significantly, which can be well interpreted by theoretical studies of these MOFs structures. Expand
A Two-Fold Interpenetrated Coordination Framework with a Rare (3,6)-Connected loh1 Topology: Magnetic Properties and Photocatalytic Behavior
A new manganese(II) coordination polymer, [Mn2(L1)4/3(L2)2]n (1) (L1 = 4′-(4-pyridyl)-4,2′:6′,4″-terpyridine, H2L2 = (4-phenyl)-2,6-bis(4-carboxyphenyl)pyridine), has been prepared and structurallyExpand
Cadmium(II) and zinc(II) metal–organic frameworks with anthracene-based dicarboxylic ligands: solvothermal synthesis, crystal structures, and luminescent properties
Five new coordination polymers, namely, [Cd4(L11)2(DPP)2(DMF)2(SO4)2]∞ (1), [Zn2(L11)(DPP)2Cl2]∞ (2), [Cd(L222)(DPP)]∞ (3), [Zn(L222)(DPP)]∞ (4) and {[Cd2(L222)Cl4][(CH3)2NH2]2}∞ (5), (DPP =Expand
New three-dimensional porous metal organic framework with tetrazole functionalized aromatic carboxylic Acid: synthesis, structure, and gas adsorption properties.
Adsorption properties of the desolvated solid [CuL] (1a) have been studied, and the results exhibit that 1a possesses fairly good capability of gas sorption for N(2, H(2), O( 2), and CO(2) gases, with high selectivity ratios. Expand
In vitro controlled release of theophylline from metal-drug complexes.
Two new metal-drug complexes constructed from non-toxic zinc and theophylline (TPL), an anti-asthmatic active drug, have been introduced into a release system based on matrices ofExpand
Three interpenetrated copper(II) coordination polymers based on a V-shaped ligand: Synthesis, structures, sorption and magnetic properties
Three new CuII coordination polymers, [Cu2(oba)2(H2O)(DMF)]·3H2O (1), [Cu4(oba)4(DMF)4]·4H2O·DMF (2) and [Cu2(oba)(hmp)2] (3) (H2oba = 4,4′-oxybis(benzoic acid), Hhmp = 2-pyridine methanol, DMF =Expand
Single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformation in unusual three-dimensional manganese(II) frameworks exhibiting unprecedented topology and homospin ferrimagnet.
A new three-dimensional Mn(II) complex, 1 (L = nicotinate N-oxide), was synthesized by solvothermal reaction and magnetically characterized and exhibits an unprecedented 3,6-connected 5-nodal net topology with Schlafli notation. Expand
