Thermal conductivity is a crucial parameter for managing exothermal gas adsorption in metal organic frameworks (MOFs), but experimental studies have been limited. In this work, the thermal conductivity of a zeolitic imidazolate framework ZIF-8 was experimentally determined on thin films using the 3ω technique at different partial pressures in perfluorohexane, nitrogen, air, and vacuum ambients at 300 K. In contrast to theoretical prediction, the thermal conductivity κ = 0.326 ± 0.002 W/m K was approximately independent of ambient gas species and pressure from atmospheric pressure to vacuum. This work introduces a useful approach for probing MOF thermal conductivity under gas adsorption.
