Surface acid-base catalytic activity of ZIF-8 revealed by super-resolution fluorescence microscopy


We investigated the catalytic activity of ZIF-8 in the fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis via super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. Acid-base activity is detected only on the outer surface and crystalline defects. Oleic acid etching introduces extra porosity and allows for catalytic conversions inside of the crystals, but leads to overall activity loss.
