Implement the use of hydrogen as an alternative energy source would reduce the use of fossil fuels, therefore it seeks to challenge any difficulty, mainly storage; an alternative of great interest is the use of metal organic networks (MOFs) and which implement different experimental strategies of synthesis due to its high chemical and structural versatility, allowing design their properties to increase its affinity for hydrogen. In this work we present the results of hydrogen uptake at 77 K and 12 bar using the isoreticular MOF: MOF-5, MOF-5-NH2 and MOF-199, synthesized by stirring at room temperature. The cubic structure and pore size materiles exlentes make these candidates for the adsorption of hydrogen, obtaining the maximum capacidac for MOF-199.
