Fig. 2: Library of functionalized 1,4-benzendicarboxylate (fu-bdc) linkers utilised in [Zn2(fu-bdc)2(dabco)]n SPCs (top). Representation of the reversible large pore (lp) to narrow pore (np) phase transition of [Zn2(fu-bdc)2(dabco)]n frameworks as a function of guest adsorption (bottom left). Powder X-ray diffraction patterns of the different derivatives showing the structural similarity of the lp phase and the marked differences of the individual np phases (bottom right).
