Abstract

High structural diversity and porosity of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) promote their applications in selective gas adsorption. The development of robust MOFs that are stable to corrosive SO2 remains a daunting challenge. Here, we report a highly robust aluminum-based MOF (HIAM-330) built on 4-connected Al3(OH)2(COO)4 cluster and 8-connected octacarboxylate ligand with a (4,8)-connected scu topology. It exhibits fully reversible SO2 uptake of 12.1 mmol/g at 298 K and 1 bar. It is capable of selective capture of SO2 from other gases (CO2, CH4, N2) with high adsorption selectivities of 60, 330, and 3537 for equimolar mixtures of SO2/CO2, SO2/CH4, and SO2/N2, respectively, at 298 K and 1 bar. Breakthrough measurements verified the capability of HIAM-330 for selective capture of SO2 (2500 ppm) from CO2 or N2. High-resolution synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction of SO2 loaded HIAM-330 revealed the binding domains of adsorbed SO2 molecules and host-guest interactions.
