On-off porosity switching in a molecular organic solid

Jones, James T.A., Holden, Daniel, Mitra, Tamoghna, Hasell, Tom, Adams, Dave J., Jelfs, Kim E., Trewin, Abbie, Willock, David J., Day, Graeme M., Bacsa, John, Steiner, Alexander and Cooper, Andrew I. (2011) On-off porosity switching in a molecular organic solid Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 50, (3), pp. 749-753. (doi:10.1002/anie.201006030).

Record type: Article


Pulling the old switcheroo: Microporosity can be switched “on” and “off” in a crystalline molecular organic solid composed of cage molecules (see scheme). The switch is facilitated by conformational flexibility in the soft organic crystal state.
