- A porous Cu(ii)-MOF shows an adsorption of 6.6 wt% of H₂ at 77 K and 62 bar and a very high 60 wt% of CO₂ at 298 K and 32 bar. When air is bubbled into a suspension of the activated MOF in the presence of different epoxides at room temperature, the CO₂ in air is readily converted into the corresponding cyclic carbonates.
