Dielectric sensitization of zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) nanopowder.
MetadataShow full item record
Metallo-organic complexes are a class of materials that are increasingly used in sensory applications. Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are their subclass that are topologically isomorphic with zeolites. The porosity of the crystals and their chemical structure, as well as their thermal and chemical stability, make some of these materials (ZIFs) very suitable for making sensors. The large specific area of micro and nano particles is an important parameter for sensor applications. Despite the fact that the dielectric characterization of powders in the RF domain was neglected in scientific works, this method can have great practical importance. This paper presents the results of the dielectric characterization of the ZIF-8 nanopowder in the frequency range of 24 Hz to 24 KHz. The results indicate that the presence of evaporation of water, ethanol and methanol leads to major changes in the dielectric permittivity of ZIF-8 nanopowder.
