Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and particularly their subclass - Zeolite Imidazolate Frameworks (ZIFs) - are used for a variety of applications including particularly energy storage. Highly porous MOFs mixed with non-wetting liquids can be used to form molecular springs (MS) for efficient mechanical and thermal energy storage/transformation. In this paper(More)
Hydrophobic microporous metal-organic framework ZIF-8 combined with water forms a molecular spring (MS), which by the forced intrusion of water into the pores and its spontaneous extrusion can store and restore large amounts of mechanical and thermal energy. Using scanning transitiometry technique, we demonstrate that the simultaneous effect of temperature(More)
