A summary of the article is shown below:

Inter-ligand van der Waals forces play a key role in the synthesis of different ZIF types. Here we report an unusual case involving covalent inter-ligand interactions through disulfide bond formation in a ZIF-8 analogue. It exhibits high CO2 uptake and stepwise adsorption of light hydrocarbons with potential applications in ethane/ethylene separation.
