In this work, the deposition of ZIF-8 surface-anchored metal-organic framework (SURMOF) films was systematically studied. A proper characterization and optimization of the synthesized films was performed and their separation performance was determined. Furthermore, a general description of the system was achieved using the Maxwell-Stefan surface diffusion model.
