Water vapour induced structural flexibility in a square lattice coordination network

Download (1.25 MB)

Herein, we introduce a new square lattice topology coordination network, sql-(1,3-bib)(ndc)-Ni, with three types of connection and detail its gas and vapour induced phase transformations. Exposure to humidity resulted in an S-shaped isotherm profile, suggesting potential utility of such materials as desiccants.
