Through systematic linker substitution in a flexible zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF) with step-shaped adsorption-desorption, structural intermediates between the known open and closed phases were isolated. Reflecting this, modulative sorption behaviour with an inverting adsorption pressure trend—in which the step pressure decreases and then increases again with increasing mixed linker concentration—is observed, highlighting how linker substitution modifies the energetic landscape of framework flexibility.
