Synthesis and characterization of polymerizable MOFs for the preparation of MOF/polymer mixed matrix membranes

STAR Protoc. 2022 Jan 7;3(1):101039. doi: 10.1016/j.xpro.2021.101039. eCollection 2022 Mar 18.


Mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) comprising polymer matrices and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) provide efficient and economic CO2 separation. One major challenge is to construct continuous and defect-free MMMs due to poor MOF/polymer compatibility. Here, this protocol describes the step-by-step details for synthesis of desired linkers that allow the fabrication of new polymerizable MOFs containing vinyl groups (BUCT MOFs) and the preparation procedures of defect-free MMMs with enhanced MOF/polymer interfacial adhesion and boosted gas separation performances. For complete details on the use and execution of this profile, please refer to Chen et al. (2021).
