The MOF-type Mg2(dobpdc) shows a record high capacity for SO2 capture (19.5 mmol g−1 at 298 K and up to 1 bar), high chemical stability towards dry and humid SO2 and an outstanding cycling performance with facile regeneration. Advanced molecular simulations have been coupled to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms responsible for the high adsorption of SO2. Fluorescence experiments further demonstrated the SO2 detection properties of this MOF material.
