                Functionalization
of organic linkers towards metal organic frameworks (MOFs) containing open metal sites having more attention and interest
provides predictable pore size, surface area and more adsorption sites (Collins, 2009). The Cu-BTC
MOF is a widely studied adsorbent for gases separation and storage, but limited
work has been done to modify the H3BTC ligand or functionalize
Cu-BTC to optimize its properties for gas adsorption. On the other hand, organic linkers
containing double-bond functionalities have rarely been studied for gas
adsorption using MOFs and N containing MOFs are more selective for CO2
over N2, CH4 and CO (Liu et al. 2007, Belof et al. 2007). In this work we report the effect of functionalization by
comparing the gas adsorption properties of 1 with 2 and those of 3 with 4.  The role of the functional group and the
polarity of the gas will be discussed.
