- A homochiral vanadium–salen based MOF with the pcu topology is constructed via in situ synthesis under solvothermal conditions. The synthesized MOF exhibits BET surface areas of 574 m² g⁻¹, showing the highest H₂ adsorption capacity (1.05 wt% at 77 K, 1 bar) and the highest CO₂ uptake (51 cm³ g⁻¹ at 273 K, 1 bar) for currently known salen-based MOFs. This framework shows excellent performance as an asymmetric catalyst in solvent-free cyanosilylation.
