Abstract

New families of materials that may potentially replace dominant carbon electrodes have emerged as a major research hotspot in the field of capacitive deionization (CDI). Here, we report a metal- organic framework (MOF)/polypyrrole (PPy) hybrid, in which conductive PPy nanotubes that are running through each MOF particle have the potential to increase the overall bulk electrical conductivity, thus promoting such a system as a good CDI electrode material. Consequently, the MOF/PPy hybrid shows a high desalination capacity of 11.34 mg g1, which is amongst those of state-of-theart CDI electrodes. Moreover, the MOF/PPy hybrid also shows a superior desalination performance for brackish water and good cycling stability, far exceeding typical carbon-based benchmarks. This is the first example of CDI electrodes derived from direct MOFbased materials, highlighting the potential of these hybrid systems as promising materials beyond traditional carbon electrodes.
