Efficient Trapping of Trace Acetylene from Ethylene in an Ultramicroporous Metal–Organic Framework: Synergistic Effect of High‐Density Open Metal and Electronegative Sites
Zhaoqiang Zhang, Shing Bo Peh, Yuxiang Wang, Chengjun Kang, Weidong Fan, Dan Zhao
The co‐existence of high‐density open metal sites and electronegative sites in confined ultramicropores is a big challenge. In their Communication on page 18927, D. Zhao et al. demonstrate that such sites co‐existing in ultramicroporous channels of a metal–organic framework can synergistically interact with acetylene, leading to excellent capture performance in the removal of trace acetylene from ethylene.
