Abstract

We report here the first example of ZIF materials synthesized in aqueous solution. The synthesis was performed at room temperature and typically took several minutes compared to hours and days in non-aqueous conditions. The obtained product were ZIF-8 nanocrystals having size of ∼85 nm and showed excellent thermal, hydrothermal and solvothermal stabilities. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
