A solvothermal approach based on In 3+ and three organic linkers, 2,6-naphthalenedicarboxylic acid (H 2NDC), 4,4′- biphenyldicarboxylic acid (H 2BPDC) and 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (H 2BDC), for the synthesis of five types of coordination polymer particles (CPPs) has been demonstrated. Five CPPs are selectively fabricated in rod, lump, ribbon, sphere and sea urchin shapes depending on the organic linkers used in the reactions. The simultaneous incorporation of two different organic linkers within a CPP in a specific ratio was verified when CPPs are synthesized from a mixture of two organic linkers. The porosity and specific gas sorption properties of five CPPs are evaluated via gas sorption measurements on N 2, CO 2 and H 2. Their porosity and specific gas sorption ability also vary depending on the linkers used in their fabrication process. While two CPPs synthesized using only one kind of organic linker are non-porous, three CPPs fabricated using the mixture of two different organic linkers are highly porous. Significant increases in the CO 2 and H 2 uptake abilities are also observed when CPPs are synthesized from two mixed linkers.
