Trapping of guests within MOF-5 was investigated by reacting solutions containing MOF particles and guest compound with zinc nitrate and triphenylacetic acid (trapping agent), then monitoring desorption of the guest from the resulting loaded, sealed MOF. This research demonstrated coating the surface of loaded MOF particles with a bulky, sterically-demanding monocarboxylic acid is a highly effective approach for trapping guests within MOFs.
