Nanoporous materials offer stimulating perspectives in building molecular rotors in the solid state and exploring sorptive properties and gas transport. In this field a particularly prominent application of solid state NMR is the study of dynamic processes in solids and in the gas phase. Molecular rotors in the solid state find a favourable playground in porous materials, such as MOFs, thanks to their large free volume, which allows for fast dynamics. In particular, we have realized a ultra-fast molecular rotor in the solid state, whose rotation speed approaches that of unhindered rotations in organic moieties even at very low temperatures.1 The rotor based on bicyclo[1.1.1]pentane–dicarboxylate moiety was installed in the 3D cubic structure of a highly porous zinc MOF, thus isolating the individual rotor from each another (Fig. 1a, b). Solid state NMR relaxation measurements 1H T1 and muon-spin spectroscopy 2 performed at temperatures as low as 2 K allowed the determination of an activation energy as low as 6.2 cal mol-1, consistent with fast molecular reorientation in the GHz regime even at the lowest temperatures (Fig. 1c). Self-assembly of polyfunctional molecules containing multiple charges, namely, tetrahedral tetra-sulfonate anions (TBS) and bi-functional linear cations (DAB), resulted in a permanently porous crystalline material in which the channels are decorated by double helices of electrostatic charges that governed the association and transport of CO2 molecules (Fig. 2 a-c). The ionic patterning of the channels allows the establishment of high interactions of 35 kJ mol-1, ideal for CO2 capture/release cycles.3 The remarkable CO2-matrix association allowed direct observation of the gas exploring the nanochannels by 13C CP-MAS NMR spectroscopy and the identification of the specific interaction sites by 2D 1H-13C HETCOR MAS NMR experiments (Fig. 2d).
