Headed for a membrane: Continuous, polycrystalline ZIF-90 membranes (picture, left) can be grown at 65 °C from methanolic precursor solutions on nanocrystal-seeded surfaces of poly(amide–imide) macroporous hollow fibers (right). The ZIF-90 membranes exhibit good separation properties for linear over cyclic hydrocarbons, as well as gas permeation selectivities higher than Knudsen values.
