Defect-induced ripening of zeolitic-imidazolate framework ZIF-8 and its implication to vapor-phase membrane synthesis

Abstract

We report for the first time that ZIF-8 crystals undergo an Ostwald-ripening-like process without degradation in the presence of a ligand vapor. The ripening process is dependent on the defect density of the crystals: the more defective the more amenable to the ripening. The process was adapted to synthesize ultra-thin ZIF-8 membranes by vapor-phase secondary growth.
