By means of ab initio methods, the effect on the H2 storage ability of a newly proposed organic linker for IRMOF-14 has been studied. The linker comprises a negatively charged sulfonate (-SO3-1) group in combination with a Li cation. It is found that these two charged groups significantly increase the interaction energy between the hydrogen molecules and the new proposed organic linker of the MOF. The substituted group of the linker may host up to six hydrogen molecules with an average interaction energy of 1.5 kcal/mol per H2 molecule. This value is three times larger than the binding energy over the bare linker that has been obtained from DFT calculations. GCMC atomistic simulations verified that the proposed material can be qualified among the highest adsorbing materials for volumetric capture of H2, especially at ambient conditions. This functionalization strategy can be applied in many different MOF structures to enhance their storage abilities.
