Influence of doped metal center on morphology and pore structure of ZIF-8 Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018 Materials Research Society. Synthesis of ZIF with zinc, cobalt, or copper was carried out by microwaves. The effect of metal center on morphologies and pores of products was studied. Nitrogen adsorption/desorption onto ZIFs was examined by density functional theory. The micro, meso, and macropores of ZIF-8, Zn/Co-ZIF-8, and Cu/ZIF-8 ranged 99.814-99.969%, 0.055-0%, and 0.031-0.130%, respectively. Average pore sizes of ZIF-8, Zn/Co-ZIF-8, and Cu/ZIF-8 are 1.291, 1.194, and 1.164 nm, respectively. Monolayer saturation limits of nitrogen onto ZIF-8, Zn/Co-ZIF-8, and Cu/ZIF-8 were 21.152, 18.943, and 17.784 mmol/g, respectively. Further, the results included densities, total surface areas, total pore volumes, and average particle sizes of ZIF-8, Zn/Co-ZIF-8, and Cu/ZIF-8.
