Title: New insights into the breathing phenomenon in ZIF-4

Abstract

The pufferfish effect in ZIF-4: synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction studies under operando conditions confirm that ZIF-4 experiences a breathing phenomenon above ∼30 kPa associated with a large expansion in the unit cell volume (∼8–9%). The presence of an expanded-pore (N 2 ) ZIF-4 structure is predicted by molecular simulations.
