A crystalline hydrogen-bonded framework with permanent porosity, built by rod-like struts and engineered to bear ultra-fast molecular rotors between two triple bonds, offers the possibility of controlling the rotational rates upon CO2 adsorption. CO2 enters the pores from the gas phase and reduces the rotational rates from the extremely fast regime of 107… CONTINUE READING
