A series of microporous lanthanide-organic framework enantiomers, Ln(BTC)(H(2)O)·(DMF)(1.1) (Ln = Y 1a, 1b; Tb 2a, 2b; Dy 3a, 3b; Er 4a, 4b; Yb 5a, 5b, BTC = 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate; DMF = N,N-dimethylformamide) with unprecedented (6,6)-connected topology have been prepared and characterized. All these compounds exhibit very high thermal stability of over 450 °C. The pore characteristics and gas sorption properties of these compounds were investigated at cryogenic temperatures by experimentally measuring nitrogen, argon, and hydrogen adsorption/desorption isotherms. The studies show that all these compounds are highly porous with surface areas of 1080 (1), 786 (2), 757 (3), 676 (4), and 774 m(2)/g (5). The amounts of the hydrogen uptakes, 1.79 (1), 1.45 (2), 1.40 (3), 1.51 (4), and 1.41 wt % (5) at 77 K (1 atm), show their promising H(2) storage performances. These porous materials with considerable surface areas, high voids of 44.5% (1), 44.8% (2), 47.7% (3), 44.2% (4), and 45.7% (5), free windows of 6-7 Å, available exposed metal sites and very high thermal stability can be easily prepared on a large scale, which make them excellent candidates in many functional applications, such as, gas storage, catalysis, and so on.
