The dynamic response of a flexible indium based metal-organic framework to gas sorption.

A doubly interpenetrated microporous indium based metal-organic framework was solvothermally synthesized, in which cage-like pores and one-dimensional channels coexist. Due to its flexible nature, the complex exhibits a novel dynamic response to N2, Ar and CO2 sorption. Furthermore, the material shows a high H2 uptake capacity.
