Abstract

In this work, spatial patterning of a thin, dense, zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) pattern was generated using photolithography and nanoscale (60 nm) dopamine coating. A bioinspired, unique, reversible, two-color iridescent pattern can be easily obtained for potential applications in sensing and photonics.
