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 H 2O adsorption while retaining substantial CO2 capacity under the conditions of interest for carbon capture from flue gas.
