Cover Story (view full-size image): Thin films of the metal–organic framework UiO-66-X where X = H, NH2, and NO2 were synthesized on Au coated QCM crystal surfaces and exposed to gas-phase benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene isomers. The experimental results suggest that defects strongly influence adsorption capacity. Specifically, the results suggest that UiO-66-NO2 films contain more missing linker defects than UiO-66-NH2 films. It was estimated that UiO-66-NH2 films have at least 2 missing linkers per unit cell and UiO-66-NO2 film have 3–4 missing linkers per unit cell. A greater number of missing linker defects in UiO-66-NO2 films effectively increases the pore size, which can accommodate more molecules per unit cell. View this paper.
