Abstract: The size of single crystals of the metal-organic framework CPO-27-Ni was incrementally increased through a series of modulated syntheses. A novel linker modulated synthesis using 2,5-dihydroxyterephthalic acid and the isomeric ligand 4,6-dihydroxyisophthalic acid yielded large single crystals of CPO-27-Ni (~70 µm). All materials proved high crystallinity and phase pure through powder X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy methods, thermogravimetric, and compositional analysis. For the first time single crystal structure analyses were carried out on CPO-27-Ni. High BET surface areas and nitric oxide (NO) release efficiencies were recorded for all materials. Large single crystals of CPO-27-Ni showed a prolonged NO release and proved suitable for in situ single crystal diffraction experiments to follow the NO adsorption. An efficient activation protocol was developed, leading to a dehydrated structure after just 4 h, which subsequently was NO-loaded, giving a first NO loaded single crystal structural model of CPO-27-Ni.
