Highly propylene-selective supported zeolite-imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) membranes synthesized by rapid microwave-assisted seeding and secondary growth. Academic Article uri icon


  • Here we report a rapid and simple microwave-assisted seeding technique for the synthesis of high-quality ZIF-8 membranes with an average propylene-propane selectivity of about 40. The new seeding method was found to be applicable to other ZIFs including ZIF-7 and SIM-1.
