Commonly used inhalation anesthetics - enflurane, isoflurane, sevoflurane, halothane, and methoxyflurane - are adsorbed within the pores of a porous fluorinated molecular crystal to the tune of up to 73.4(±0.2)% by weight. Uptake of all studied anesthetics is quite fast, typically reaching saturation in less than three minutes.
