Abstract

We report a synthetic strategy for constructing a novel flexible MOF from a rigid parent structure by ligand exchange. This is the first reported study on introducing flexible heterogeneity into a rigid structure via substantial structural rearrangement. The daughter material exhibits enhanced gas separation selectivity compared with the parent.
