The initial use of a novel elongated tricarboxylic acid H3hmpib in metal-organic framework (MOF) chemistry resulted in a [Zn4O(hmpib) 2] MOF (UCY-1) with pyrite topology. The compound displays a remarkably high internal surface area despite its double-interpenetrated structure as well as high CO2 uptake and selective adsorption for it over CH4.
