Vanadium metal–organic frameworks: structures and applications

Author affiliations


This perspective review paper describes the V-containing metal–organic frameworks that have been developed since the first systematic reports on MOFs almost 15 years ago. These hybrid crystalline materials, containing V(III) or V(IV) as metal nodes, show interesting behavior in oxidation catalysis and gas sorption. A significant amount of papers has appeared on the use of these structures in gas (hydrocarbon, CO2) separation. Promising future research and development of V-MOFs is suggested.
