Amorphization of the prototypical zeolitic imidazolate framework ZIF-8 by ball-milling

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the rapid amorphization of the prototypical substituted zeolitic imidazolate framework, ZIF-8, by ball-milling. The resultant amorphous ZIF-8 (amZIF-8) possesses a continuous random network (CRN) topology with a higher density and a lower porosity than its crystalline counterpart. A decrease in thermal stability upon amorphization is also evident.
