Guest-induced gate-opening of a zeolite imidazolate framework

Author affiliations

Abstract

The zinc benzimidazolate coordination polymer (ZIF-7) shows a reversible gate-opening effect upon variation of partial pressure of CO2 or temperature. This phenomenon, which is unique for a MOF with sodalite topology, arises from a phase-to-phase transformation upon guest adsorption–desorption.
