Title: Harnessing solvent effects to integrate alkylamine into metal–organic frameworks for exceptionally high CO 2 uptake


Alkylamine modified MOF prepared with a less polar solvent (cyclohexane) has a higher alkylamine loading amount and higher CO 2 uptake than when prepared in a more polar solvent (dichloromethane).
