Abstract: Four new phases of a 2-fold interpenetrated Hybrid Ultramicroporous Material (HUM), SIFSIX-14-Cu-i, that exhibit 99%, 93%, 89%, and 70% partial interpenetration, respectively, have been obtained. 1:99 C2H2/C2H4 gas separation studies reveal that as the proportion interpenetration decreases, so does the separation performance.
