In order to explore the potential of novel open metal organic frameworks (MOFs) with soc topology for gas storage applications, we performed a systematic physical adsorption study with Hydrogen, Methane and Carbon dioxide as adsorptives over a wide range of temperatures (77–323 K) and pressures (0–5 MPa) by using a volumetric low pressure adsorption analyzer equipped with a cryostat, and a high pressure gravimetric system. The advanced interpretation of our systematic adsorption data in combination with the results from a comprehensive structural and surface characterization allows one assessing the potential of these novel MOFs for gas storage and separation applications.
