Abstract

We have synthesized, characterized, and computationally validated the high Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area and hydrogen uptake of a new, noncatenating metal-organic framework (MOF) material, NU-111. Our results imply that replacing the phenyl spacers of organic linkers with triple-bond spacers is an effective strategy for boosting molecule-accessible gravimetric surface areas of MOFs and related high-porosity materials.
