Underoil superhydrophilic surfaces: water adsorption in metal-organic frameworks
Zhiguang Guo, Yuanyuan Hou, Mingming Liu, Lu Tie, Jing Li
Inspired by sarcocarps, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) that can capture moisture spontaneously are presented as building blocks for the construction of underoil superhydrophilic surfaces. The MOF coating showed excellent self-cleaning properties to crude oil under water, and achieved on-demand emulsion separation through selective water filtration and adsorption.
