- A new pseudo-seeding and nano-scaffolding method was developed to synthesize thin ZIF-8 hybrid membranes (100–200 nm) with remarkable mechanical and structural stability and high H₂ permeance (2.87 × 10⁻⁵ mol m⁻² s⁻¹ Pa⁻¹) and selectivity over CO₂ (14), N₂ (18), CH₄ (35), C₃H₆ (52.4) and C₃H₈ (950.1).
