A liquid metal composite by ZIF-8 encapsulation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new composite material positioning a liquid metal core within a zeolitic imidazolate framework shell is developed. The core–shell interactions along with the structure/properties of the composite material can be easily regulated by the ligand/metal ion ratio. Enhanced photothermal conversion of the liquid metal core is achieved after ZIF-8 encapsulation.
