1D, 2D, and 3D three metal-organic hybrid frameworks of Mg (II) have been synthesized using 4,5-imidazoledicarboxylic acid (H 3idc) with control of the temperature and stoichiometry in a hydrothermal technique. All of the frameworks show high thermal stability, and frameworks 1D and 3D provide highly hydrophilic pore surfaces, correlated by the selective sorption of water molecules over the organic vapor and other gases like N 2 and CO 2.
