A pressure-amplifying framework material with negative gas adsorption transitions
Nature DUT-49
Highly flexible MOF DUT-49 (from the Kaskel group in Dresden) shows negative gas adsorption! Upon adsorption, it contracts abruptly (50% decrease in volume) and expels gas molecules from its pores. Using a combination of in situ characterization and computational techniques, we explain why in our Nature letter.
