A novel ultramicroporous coordination polymer, namely [Cu(F-pymo)2(H2O)1.25]n (1, F-pymo ) 5-fluoropyrimidin-2-olate), has been prepared and structurally characterized. 1 displays a zeolitic gismondine (GIS) topology, with ca. 2.9 Å wide helical channels which, in the thermally activated counterpart (1¢), account for a 13% void volume and are responsible for the observed selective solid-gas adsorption properties toward H2, N2, and CO2. At 77 K 1¢ behaves as a molecular sieve, selectively adsorbing H2 over N2, possibly due to size-exclusion reasons. At variance, although CO2 molecules are slightly larger than the pore size, they are readily incorporated by 1¢ at temperatures as high as 433 K. Variable-temperature X-ray powder diffraction (TXRPD) studies, in the temperature range 303-473 K, show that dehydration is reversible and has almost negligible effects on the network. At variance, the uptake of CO2 occurs through a transient phase and channels expansion. While the gas storage capacity of 1¢ is not very highsH2, 0.56 wt % and 0.010 kg H2/L at 90 K and 900 Torr, and CO2, 7.6 wt % at 273 K and 900 Torrsthe guest molecules achieve very high densities, comparable to that of the liquid for H2 (0.023 vs 0.021 molecules Å-3) and to that of the solid for CO2 (0.014 vs 0.022 molecules Å-3). In addition, we have also studied the effect of the perturbation exerted by the guest molecules on its magnetic properties. The results show that while dehydration of 1 has negligible effect on its spin-canted antiferromagnetic behavior, CO2 incorporation in the pores is responsible for an increment of the transition temperature at which the weak ferromagnetic ordering takes place from 22 to 29 K.
