Reversible pressure-induced amorphization of a zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-4).
- We report the reversible pressure-induced amorphization of a zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-4, [Zn(Im)(2)]). This occurs irrespective of pore occupancy and takes place via a novel high pressure phase (ZIF-4-I) when solvent molecules are present in the pores. A significant reduction in bulk modulus upon framework evacuation is also observed for both ZIF-4 and ZIF-4-I.
