This work reports hydrogen adsorption properties of four different metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) namely Zn-BDC, Cr-BDC, Ni-DABCO, and Mg-DOBDC. Gravimetric hydrogen adsorption measurements are performed over a wide range of temperature (90 K to 298 K) and pressure (0 bar to 100 bar). At the lowest experimental temperature (90 K to 100 K) all the isotherms are saturated and the adsorption capacity is governed by pore volume. On the other hand, at room temperature the isotherms closely follow Henry’s law. Modeling of the excess isotherms is also done. Net adsorption isotherms, which can directly indicate the efficiency of porous adsorbent for storage, are also presented. In terms of volumetric efficiency, Mg-DOBDC MOF exhibits best storage capacity out of all the MOFs considered in this study.
