Vapor-Phase Linker Exchange of the Metal-Organic Framework ZIF-8: A Solvent-Free Approach to Post-synthetic Modification

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are a sub-class of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Although generally stable, ZIFs can undergo post-synthetic linker exchange (PSLE) in solution under mild conditions. Herein, we present a novel, solvent-free approach to post-synthetic linker exchange through exposure to linker vapor.
