Low coverage adsorption properties of C2-C7 linear and C5-C7 iso-alkanes are measured. Shape selective properties of the Cu3(BTC)2 MOF are determined using the pulse chromatographic technique. Preferential adsorption of linear over methylbranched alkanes is observed. Linear alkanes fit better in the pores resulting in stronger interaction with the framework atoms, and thus longer retention.
