Abstract

Grace under pressure: In the first high-pressure crystallographic study on the metal-organic framework MOF-5, increasing pressure initially results in the pressure-transmitting fluid being squeezed into the pores. Further pressure increase causes a large reduction in pore content as solvent is evacuated from the pores, until a complete loss of crystallinity is observed at pressures above 3.2 GPa.
