Title: Gate-opening effect in ZIF-8: the first experimental proof using inelastic neutron scattering

In order to understand the behavior of industrial molecular separations, the gate-opening phenomenon in ZIFs are of paramount importance. We show for the first time using in situ inelastic neutron scattering (INS) the swinging of the -CH 3 groups and the imidazolate linkers in the prototypical ZIF-8 and ZIF-8@AC hybrid materials upon exposure to mild N 2 pressure.
