The first member of a new class of phthalocyanine-based metal-organic frameworks, MOF-IP, has been synthesized in order to gauge the potential of this type of materials for hydrogen storage. Preliminary studies indicate that MOF-IP is a robust material with a hydrogen uptake capacity of 1.15 wt% at 77 K under atmospheric pressure.
