A novel two dimensional porous framework [Cd3(BTB) 2(DEF)4]n·2nDEF (1) based on {Cd 3} building blocks with bilayer honeycomb structure constructed from cadmium ion bridged honeycomb layers exhibits promising adsorption for N 2 after activation to obtain coordinatively unsaturated Cd centers, and SEM characterization demonstrates interesting microporous structure inside of the compound.
