Abstract

In this work the effect of a porous material´s flexibility on the dynamic reversibility of a non-wetting liquid intrusion was explored experimentally. For this purpose, high-pressure water intrusion together with high-pressure in-situ small angle neutron scattering were applied for superhydrophobic grafted silica and two metal-organic frameworks with different flexibility (ZIF-8 and Cu2(3,3',5,5'tetraethyl-4,4'-bipyrazolate). These results established the relation between pressurization rate, water intrusion-extrusion hysteresis and porous materials flexibility. It was demonstrated that the dynamic hysteresis of water intrusion into superhydrophobic nanopores can be controlled by the flexibility of a porous material. This opens a new area of applications for flexible metal-organic-frameworks, namely, a smart pressure transmitting fluid, capable of dissipating undesired vibrations depending on their frequency. Finally, it was demonstrated that nanotriboelectrification does not have significant effect on the dynamic hysteresis of water intrusion, while being strongly dependent on a porous material´s topology.
