Stability of metal–organic frameworks under gamma irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the study of the resistance of archetypal MOFs (MILs, HKUST-1, UiO-66, and ZIF-8) under gamma irradiation. The different porous solids were irradiated with doses up to 1.75 MGy. All the MOFs constructed with transition metals (Cu2+, Zn2+, Zr4+) exhibit an evident destruction of the framework, whereas the compounds constructed with aluminium remain intact.
