Single-molecule trap: Easy activation of the water-stable metal-organic framework PCN-200 provides a new route to low-energy selective CO(2) capture through stimuli-responsive adsorption behavior. This elastic CO(2) trapping effect was confirmed by single-component and binary gas-adsorption isotherms and crystallographic determination.
