The thin-film fabrication of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been intensively investigated towards future sensing applications and gas-separation membranes. This time, we introduce observation of the dynamic gate-opening-type guest recognition in a thin film of a two-dimensional MOF. Although this MOF has an interdigitated-type structure, it exhibits no obvious response to the guests in the bulk state. Importantly, the thin-film state exhibits clear guest uptake with a gate-opening-type structural transformation, as directly revealed by in situ X-ray studies (p.474)
