An isostructural pair of extremely rare, permanently microporous sulfonate-based metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) having a novel topology has been reported here by integration of rationally chosen building units. The compounds bear polar sites in the pore surfaces and exhibit selective adsorption of CO2, which features among the highest reported uptakes in the domain of organosulfonate-based MOFs. The compounds also exhibit multifunctionality for C6-cyclic hydrocarbon separation and selective detection of neurotransmitter nitric oxide. Such multifunctional behavior on the basis of permanent porosity has been rarely observed for sulfonate-based MOFs. The efficacy of the synthesis approach is further highlighted by the resistance over a wide pH range and promising feasibility of reticular chemistry in porous organosulfonate-based systems.
