Abstract

We designed, synthesized, and characterized a new Zr-based metal–organic framework material, NU-1100, with a pore volume of 1.53 ccg−1and Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) surface area of 4020 m2g−1; to our knowledge, currently the highest published for Zr-based MOFs. CH4/CO2/H2adsorption isotherms were obtained over a broad range of pressures and temperatures and are in excellent agreement with the computational predictions. The total hydrogen adsorption at 65 bar and 77 K is 0.092 g g−1, which corresponds to 43 g L−1. The volumetric and gravimetric methane-storage capacities at 65 bar and 298 K are approximately 180 vSTP/v and 0.27 g g−1, respectively.
