Layer-by-layer aqueous rapid synthesis of ZIF-8 films on a reactive surface

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis of zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) films in an aqueous system was achieved. ZIF-8 films with controllable thickness were successfully grown on a modified substrate at room temperature. The 3-(2-imidazolin-1-yl)propyltriethoxysilane (IPTES) was used to first form a pseudo-surface of ZIF-8 on a glass substrate, followed by layer-by-layer growth. The film thickness of ZIF-8 was controlled within the range from 220 to 640 nm per growth cycle by changing the reactivity of the zinc source. Notably, the use of a preorganized zinc source led to drastic changes in the formation rate of ZIF-8. The use of a low-reactivity growth solution containing zinc acetate thus allowed the preparation of dense ZIF-8 films.
