Abstract

We present in this study a detailed thermodynamic analysis of N2 adsorption at 77.4 K and low pressures in a series of metal−organic framework materials displaying different structures, pore textures, and framework flexibility. The energy heterogeneity of these materials has been quantified using a thermodynamic isotherm model developed in previous studies through two characteristic parameters. This formulation also allows the generation of an equation differing from the Dubinin−Astakhov isotherm that allows a proper description of gas adsorption at low pressures. Unlike zeolites or rigid coordination polymers, highly flexible MIL-53(Al) and MIL-68(In) materials are characterized by N2 adsorption isotherms lacking of a characteristic Henry’s region (linear trend) at low relative pressures. We argue about an unexpected promotion of energy heterogeneity on these materials due to sorbate-induced elastic deformation ascribed to compression tensions to explain this observation.
