Oxygen plasma treatment of HKUST-1 for porosity upkeep upon exposure to moisture

Abstract

Despite their prestigious properties, it is difficult to apply metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) to real field situations owing to their vulnerable structures that are sensitive to moisture. Herein, an O2 plasma technique is introduced as a new method for the activation and protection of HKUST-1 porosity. In an unprecedented manner, O2 plasma-treated HKUST-1 retains its porosity over long periods of exposure to moisture compared to pristine HKUST-1. This porosity upkeep was examined by N2 adsorption and desorption isotherm measurements of moisture-exposed HKUST-1 that had not been additionally activated.
