Corner-sharing assembly of dodecahedral cavities with both paddle-wheel [M(2)(CO(2))(4)] units and trimeric [M(3)(μ(3)-OH)(CO(2))(6)] units leads to two isomorphous chiral microporous metal-organic frameworks, where the heterometallic framework has high surface area and excellent CO(2)/N(2) adsorption selectivity.
