Abstract

(Figure Presented) Using reversible polymerization and depolymerization reactions in a single crystal state, we achieved a reversible transformation from a nanocluster to a coordination polymer. During the interconversion, the structural frameworks switched between nonporous hexanuclear clusters and porous double-zigzag chains; the magnetic behaviors switched between paramagnetism and metamagnetism, respectively. The microporous framework, which had 1D channels 1.9 Å x 3.6 Å in size, exhibited selective gas adsorption of H 2 and CO2 over N2.
