A microporous metal organic framework structure, Zn 2(bpdc) 2(bpee)·2DMF (DMF: N,N-dimethylformamide), has been synthesized via solvothermal reactions. The compound is a new member of the ℝ.PM series (ℝPM=Rutgers Recyclable Porous Material) that possesses a flexible and recyclable three-dimensional framework containing onedimensional channels. It exhibits interesting and multifold functionality, including porosity, commensurate adsorption for hydrocarbons, high hydrogen binding energy (determined by isosteric heats of hydrogen adsorption and confirmed by van der Waals density functional calculations) as a result of multifold binding to aromatic ligands (determined by IR spectroscopy), strong photoluminescence emission, and reversible fluorescence quenching properties.
