|Title:||A rationally designed nitrogen-rich metal-organic framework and its exceptionally high CO2 and H2 uptake capability||Authors:||Wang, X.-J.
|Issue Date:||2013||Citation:||Wang, X.-J., Li, P.-Z., Chen, Y., Zhang, Q., Zhang, H., Chan, X.X., Ganguly, R., Li, Y., Jiang, J., Zhao, Y. (2013). A rationally designed nitrogen-rich metal-organic framework and its exceptionally high CO2 and H2 uptake capability. Scientific Reports 3 : -. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1038/srep01149||Abstract:||On the way towards a sustainable low-carbon future, the design and construction of chemical or physical adsorbents for CO2 capture and clean energy storage are vital technology. The incorporation of accessible nitrogen-donor sites into the pore walls of porous adsorbents can dramatically affect the CO2 uptake capacity and selectivity on account of the dipole-quadrupole interactions between the polarizable CO2 molecule and the accessible nitrogen site. In the present work, a nitrogen-rich rth-type metal-organic framework (MOF) was constructed based on rational design and careful synthesis. The MOF presents exceptionally high uptake capacity not only for CO2 but also for H 2, which is attributed to favorable interactions between the gas molecules and the nitrogen-rich triazole units of the MOF proved by both experimental measurements and theoretical molecular simulations.||Source Title:||Scientific Reports||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/88474||ISSN:||20452322||DOI:||10.1038/srep01149|
