The metal-organic framework Ni-DOBDC was modified with pyridine molecules to make the normally hydrophilic internal surface more hydrophobic. Experiments and molecular simulations show that the pyridine modification reduces H2O adsorption while retaining substantial CO2 capacity under the conditions of interest for carbon capture from flue gas.
