HZIF-based hybrids for electrochemical energy applications

Author affiliations


Hybrid zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (HZIFs) possess the characteristics of both ZIFs and inorganic zeolites, attracting tremendous attention for their potential applications in electrochemical energy storage and conversion. This mini review presents design strategies for constructing advanced electrochemical functional materials based on Mo/W-based HZIF precursors/templates, and mainly focus on the component manipulation, morphology control, and the favored electrochemical reactions. The Mo/W-based HZIFs and their derivatives with a tailored composition and structure display excellent activity and stability for a broad electrochemical energy-related application. These summarized systematic strategies and perspectives offer inspiration and guidance for the future development of HZIF-based hybrids for more efficient and durable electrochemical energy applications.
