In situ Diffraction Studies of selected metal-organic framework (MOF) materials for guest capture/exchange applications

Abstract

This paper gives a brief review of in situ diffraction studies (including Synchrotron and conventional X-ray, energy dispersive X-ray, and neutron techniques) for representative metal-organic framework (MOF) materials, both single-crystal and powder, with emphasis on the presence of guest molecules in the pores of these materials. A brief discussion of the apparatus, both custom-designed and commercially available, for carrying out in situ studies is included. Selected examples illustrate the mechanisms of guest adsorption, as well as characterization of disorder, CO2 attachment sites, gas selectivity, “breathing” behavior, guest-related phase transformations, and synthesis. Examples of guest molecules include CO2, H2O, N2, and N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF).
