Data supporting journal manuscript. Includes an Excel spreadsheet with all the raw data for the figures in the manuscript, calibrations and calculations. Also includes 3D chemical structures of MOF units, and SEM images of MOF/polymer composite materials.


In this paper, we report a simple approach to study the fundamental aspect of light-responsive metal organic framework (MOF) in UiO-66 topology through a mixed-ligand approach. Apart from change in the structural property, the loading of azobenzene linker inside the framework also affects the COlight-responsive property and CO2/Nselectivity which could help to design future low-energy COadsorbents. Further study to incorporate the MOFs into mixed matrix membranes also indicates the benefit of higher azobenzene loading in the MOF to enhance the CO2/Nseparation performance since it can improve the separation performance which could not be obtained in non-functionalized fillers.
