Abstract

We realize that tailoring pore size/geometry and Chemistry, by virture of alkynl or naphthalene replacing phenyl within a series of isomorphic MOFs, can optimize methane storage working capacities, affording an exceptionally high working capacity of 203 cm3 (STP) cm-3 at 298 K and 5-80 bar.
