The microporous zeolitic imidazolate framework ZIF-4 has been synthesized, and its ethylene/ethane and propylene/propane separation potentials have been evaluated by single-component adsorption isotherms and breakthrough experiments of the respective binary mixtures. In all experiments, a higher selectivity for the paraffin is observed that is manifested by a steeper equilibrium isotherm as well as a later breakthrough in the fixed-bed adsorber experiments. Microporous interesting for cyclic adsorption processes such as pressure-swing adsorption (PSA).
