We use and demonstrate here the "solid-solution" mixed-linker approach (defined as variation of two linker proportions) as an easy and inexpensive way to fine-tune the hydrophilicity properties of isoreticular MOFs. The water uptake region was easily shifted in between the limits set by the two single-ligand MOFs.

The new isostructural porous supramolecular materials {[Cu2(amp)4Cl][M(C2O4)3]·6H2O}n show good potential to be used for automatic indoor control in the range of 15 to 25% r.H. recommended for many activities.

Nanoscale 2019, 11, 4073–4082. [485pdf-file]

Small change - large effect: An added para-methyl group on the aryl ring in the 1-aryl-3-alkyl-imidazolium motif of TAAILs leads to well-separated metal nanoparticles.
