An aqua-bridged Mn metal-organic framework was prepared, and a dramatic structural transformation occurs upon solvent exchange-resolvation and desolvation-resolvation processes. The desolvated phase, formed by removing the aqua bridges, exhibits selective CO2 uptake over N2, H2, and CH4. Further, antiferromagnetic couplings are also found between Mn spins in the secondary building units. This journal is
