Abstract The effects of saline water on the material properties of two promising salt rejecting structures, SAPO-34 and ZIF-8, were explored for desalination. Immersing SAPO-34 in seawater revealed a release of Al which involved some replacement by Ca, K, Mg and Na. X-ray powder diffraction revealed a robust structure in deionised and seawater solutions. ZIF-8 on the other hand, lost 1% of its mass due to the release of Zn into both deionised water and seawater solutions, yet the structure… CONTINUE READING
