Abstract

We show that the MOF NU-111 exhibits equally high volumetric and gravimetric methane uptake values, both within ≈75% of the DOE targets at 300 K. Upon reducing the temperature to 270 K, the uptake increases to 0.5 g g -1 and 284 cc(STP) per cc at 65 bar. Adsorption of CO2 and H2 is also reported. Simulated isotherms are in excellent agreement with those obtained from experiments.
