Abstract: The compositional dependence of thermal expansion behaviour in 19 different perovskite-like metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) of composition [AI][MII(HCOO)3] (A = alkylammonium cation; M = octahedrally-coordinated divalent metal) is studied using variable-temperature X-ray powder diffraction measurements. While all systems show essentially the same type of thermomechanical response—irrespective of their particular structural details—the magnitude of this response is shown to be a function of AI and MII cation radii, as well as the molecular anisotropy of AI. Flexibility is maximised for large MII and small AI, while the shape of AI has implications for the direction of framework hingeing.
