Flexibility transition and guest-driven reconstruction in a ferroelastic metal-organic framework

Abstract:

The metal-organic framework copper(i) tricyanomethanide, Cu(tcm), undergoes a ferroelastic transition on cooling below Tf = 240 K. Thermal expansion measurements reveal an order-of-magnitude variation in framework flexibility across Tf. The low-temperature phase α-Cu(tcm) exhibits colossal positive and negative thermal expansion that is the strongest ever reported for a framework material. On exposure to acetonitrile, Cu(tcm) undergoes a reconstructive solid-phase transition to acetonitriloco...
