Title: A flexible thioether-based MOF as a crystalline sponge for structural characterization of liquid organic molecules

Abstract

Herein, we present a flexible MOF (PCN-41) composed of a thioether-based linker. By the virtue of the low symmetry, structural flexibility, and the electron-rich cavity environment, PCN-41 exhibits crystalline sponge behavior toward a series of electron-deficient liquid molecules.
