A set of terms, definitions, and recommendations is provided for use in the classification of coordination polymers, networks, and metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). A hierarchical terminology is recommended in which the most general term is coordination polymer. Coordination networks are a subset of coordination polymers and MOFs a further subset of coordination networks. One of the criteria an MOF needs to fulfill is that it contains potential voids, but no physical measurements of porosity or…

Metal-Organic Frameworks and Metal-Organic Cages - A Perspective.

The peculiarities and similarities of MOCs and MOFs in terms of synthetic strategies and approaches to system characterisation are discussed, and the stability of both classes of material is compared.

New Dimension of Coordination Polymers and Metal-Organic Frameworks toward Functional Glasses and Liquids.

The potentials of non-crystalline states and functionalities as a new research direction for CPs are proposed, which would be related to ionic liquids and other ionic soft matters.

Recent Advances in Porous Coordination Polymers

Porous coordination polymers (PCPs), also known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), are a unique family of porous materials that combine the benefits of both inorganic and organic components to

Engineering metal-based luminescence in coordination polymers and metal-organic frameworks.
