The robust metal-carbonate backbone in a series of water-stable, anionic frameworks has been harnessed for the function of highly efficient solid-state ion-conduction. This work presents the first report of evaluating ion-conduction in a purely metal-carbonate framework, which exhibits ultrahigh ion-conductivity on the order of 10−2 S cm−1 along with very low activation energy, which is comparable to highly conducting well-known crystalline coordination polymers or commercialized organic polymers like Nafion.
