A Co(ii)-based MOF, {[Co3(L)2(bpb)(DMA)(H2O)]·Solvents}n (RH-1), with a unique interpenetrated framework has been solvothermally prepared. Because of its unsaturated metal sites and narrow pores inside the framework, RH-1 demonstrated excellent selective CO2 adsorption over N2 and CH4 and good performance in catalytic CO2 conversion to cyclic carbonates under mild conditions.
