ABSTRACT: The action behind contraction: The metal-organic framework [Cu 3(btc)2] displays negative thermal expansion (NTE) over a broad temperature range. This property arises from two coincident mechanisms, each of which are unique for NTE systems: the concerted transverse vibration of triangular organic linkers, and the local dynamic distortion of dinuclear metal centers within the framework lattice.
