Organic Frameworks as Top Materials
- Pp. 402-443 (42)Mário J. F. Calvete
Organic frameworks are interconnected networks of channels, created in order to obtain stable rigid one-, two-, or three-dimensional pore structures, having well-ordered structures and uniform pore sizes. Hence, herein is presented a conspectus on the field of organic frameworks, namely covalent-organic frameworks (COF) and metal-organic frameworks (MOF), including their preparation, as well as detailed examples on several promising applications with 300 references provided. Some synthetic details on the preparation of some state-of-the-art compounds are given as well.
