Scholarcy highlights

  • Article Views are the COUNTER-compliant sum of full text article downloads since November 2008 across all institutions and individuals
  • Citations are the number of other articles citing this article, calculated by Crossref and updated daily
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • Para-disubstituted alkylaromatics such as p-xylene are preferentially adsorbed from an isomer mixture on three isostructural metal–organic frameworks: MIL-125(Ti)4(BDC)6]), MIL-125(Ti)-NH24(BDC-NH2)6]), and CAU-1(Al)-NH24(OCH3)8(BDC-NH2)6]). Their unique structure contains octahedral cages, which can separate molecules on the basis of differences in packing and interaction with the pore walls, as well as smaller tetrahedral cages, which are capable of separating molecules by molecular sieving. These experimental data are in line with predictions by molecular simulations
