ZIF-8 Metal Organic Framework


Background Colour:

ZIF-8 (Zeolitic Imidazolate Framework) is a metal organic framework (MOF) made by coordinated by four in the same way as Si and Al atoms are covalently joined by bridging oxygens in zeolites. The sphere represents the pore size within the framework which can be used for gas storage.
