A microporous metal−organic framework 1, Cu(R-GLA-Me)(4,4′-Bipy)0.5·0.55H2O (R-GLA-Me = R-2-methylglutarate, 4,4′-Bipy = 4,4′-bipyridine), with a primitive cubic net was synthesized and characterized. With pores of about 2.8 × 3.6 Å, the activated 1a exhibits exclusive adsorption of water over methanol in a binary water−methanol (1:1) liquid mixture.
