Abstract

Three highly porous Zr(IV)-based metal–organic frameworks, UBMOF-8, UBMOF-9, and UBMOF-31, were synthesized by using 2,2′-diamino-4,4′-stilbenedicarboxylic acid, 4,4′-stilbenedicarboxylic acid, and combination of both linkers, respectively. The mixed-linker UBMOF-31 showed excellent hydrogen uptake of 4.9 wt% and high selectivity for adsorption of CO2 over N2 with high thermal stability and moderate water stability with permanent porosity and surface area of 2552 m2 g−1.
