Abstract

(Figure Presented) Thoroughly absorbing: The simple combination of lithium ions and isonicotinate anions (1) leads to the formation of a lightweight salt (see picture; C black, O red, N blue, Li purple) that is able to reversibly sorb H2, N2, CO2, and CH4.The salt exists as a 3D network of microchannels that are occupied by solvent molecules. © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
