The structure of Ni-2(dobdc) (dobdc(4) = 2,5-dioxido-1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) as a function of deuterium adsorption has been determined through the application of in situ neutron powder diffraction. Detailed information concerning the local adsorption potential for hydrogen at each site has also been probed using inelastic neutron scattering techniques. These results are compared to those previously published on isostructural analogs and the Ni2+ variant shows the shortest deuterium-metal distance in the M-2(dobdc) series (M = Mg, Zn, Co, Fe) that have been studied so far.
