The design of three fluorinated terphenylic dicarboxylic acids proposed in the project are presented and explained considering two aspects.

The size, more specifically the length of the dicarboxylic acids aims at ensuring large pores within the coordination network.

The functionality, which in this case is ensured by the presence of fluorine atoms, will procure the stability and hydrophobicity of the network and the interaction with the gas to be stored or separated.  

The isolated hybrid networks will be evaluated by means of crystallinity and surface area and their synthesis will be constantly varied in order to ensure the achievement of the optimal network properties.
