High Uptakes of CO2 and CH4 in Mesoporous MetalOrganic Frameworks MIL-100 and MIL-101

Mesoporous MOFs MIL-100 and MIL-101 adsorb huge amounts of CO2 and CH4. Characterization was performed using both manometry and gravimetry in different laboratories for isotherms coupled with microcalorimetry and FTIR to specify the gassolid interactions. In particular, the uptake of carbon dioxide in MIL-101 has been shown to occur with a record capacity of 40 mmol g−1 or 390 cm3STP cm−3 at 5 MPa and 303 K.
