Enhancing selective CO2 adsorption via chemical reduction of a redox-active metal–organic framework – A new microporous framework, Zn(NDC)(DPMBI) (where NDC = 2,7-naphthalene dicarboxylate and DPMBI = N,N′-di-(4-pyridylmethyl)-1,2,4,5-benzenetetracarboxydiimide), containing the redox-active benzenetetracarboxydiimide (also known as pyromellitic diimide) ligand core has been crystallographically characterised and its carbon dioxide uptake as a function of oxidation studied.
