Title: One-of-a-kind: a microporous metal–organic framework capable of adsorptive separation of linear, mono- and di-branched alkane isomers via temperature- and adsorbate-dependent molecular sieving

Abstract

Clean separation of linear, monobranched, and dibranched alkanes is achieved using a flexible, microporous metal–organic framework (MOF).
