The structure transformation of Mg-CUK-1 due to the confinement of H2O molecules was investigated. Powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) patterns were collected at different H2O loadings and the cell parameters of the H2O-loaded Mg-CUK-1 material were determined by the Le Bail strategy refinements. A bottleneck effect was observed when one hydrogen-bonded H2O molecule per unit cell (18% relative humidity (RH)) was confined within Mg-CUK-1, confirming the increase in the CO2 capture for Mg-CUK-1..
