- The control of the structure, shape, and components of metal-organic frameworks, in which metal ions and organic ligands coordinate to form crystalline nanopore structures, plays an important role in the use of many electrochemical applications, such as energy storage, high-performance photovoltaic devices, and supercapacitors. In this study, systematic controls of synthesis variables were performed to control the morphology of ZIF-8 during the ZIF-L-to-ZIF-8 transformation of ZIF-L, which has the same building block as ZIF-8 but forms a two-dimensional structure. Furthermore, additional precursors or surfactants (Zn2+, 2mIm, and CTAB) were introduced during the transition to determine whether the alteration could be regulated. Lastly, the partial substitution insertion of a new organic precursor, 2abIm, during the ZIF-L-to-ZIF-8 transformation of ZIF-L was achieved, and modulation of the adsorption and pore characteristics (suppression of gate-opening properties of ZIF-8) has been confirmed.
