Synthesis of magnesium ZIF-8 from Mg(BH4)2

Author affiliations


Porous Mg(2-methyl imidazolate)2 (Mg-ZIF-8) was synthesised from Mg(BH4)2 as a precursor under an Ar atmosphere. It possesses an uncommon tetrahedral Mg2+–N coordination geometry that is stabilised by the formation of a framework, and it exhibits a Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area greater than 1800 m2 g−1.
