Abstract

Ionic transport (for applications in nanofluidics or membranes) and "ionic diode" phenomena in a zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) are investigated by directly growing the framework from aqueous Zn2+ and 2-methylimidazole as an "asymmetric plug" into a 20 μm diameter pore in a ca. 6 μm thin poly-ethylene-terephthalate (PET) film.
