Abstract

This review explores the features and corresponding application of ZIF-67 and its derivatives. Thermally and chemically stable zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF) materials have received extensive research and application interest. In particular, ZIF-67 can be synthesized by a facile and environmentally friendly organic synthesis method. The nanostructures and mean particle sizes of ZIF-67 can be adjusted by controlling experimental conditions carefully. The resulting ZIF-67 possesses the characteristics of a tunable pore aperture, highly stable structure, catalytic activity and so on. Furthermore, by combining the advantages of ZIF-67 and various components or structures, the resulting compounds have a potentially better performance than pure ZIF-67. Therefore, ZIF-67 and its derivatives have aroused great interest of scientists and have the potential to be applied to gas adsorption, molecular separation, electrochemistry, catalysis and so on.
