We proposed for the first time a CO2-ionic liquid (IL) interfacial templating route for the production of hollow MOF microparticles. By adding the gaseous CO2 into IL phase under stirring, a large number of CO2 bubbles are generated, which provide numerous CO2-IL interfaces, serving as the nucleation or agglomeration centers for the MOF nanocrystals.
