We describe a new class of porous metal-adeninate crystalline materials. We describe the syntheses of these materials and discuss strategies for optimizing the capacity of these materials as selective sorbents for carbon dioxide. In particular, we describe how we can control the coordination chemistry used to construct the materials in order to expose specific Lewis-basic functional groups to the pore cavities in order to facilitate capture of CO2. We also use these materials to systematically evaluate the impact that pore size and volume has on selective CO2 adsorption.
