About this collection

We are delighted to present our Chemical Society Reviews themed issue on current and future challenges in the field of porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and porous polymers, and the need to advance our understanding in this areas of research, from the birth of innovative materials towards the control of their properties in emerging applications. Guest edited by Guillaume Maurin (Université de Montpellier), Christian Serre (Université de Versailles), Andrew Cooper (University of Liverpool) and Gérard Férey (Institut de France, Academie des sciences), this issue aims to offer highlights of the most advanced experimental and computational tools to address the challenges in each targeted topics going from synthesis, shaping, structure characterization to the most promising applications. In line with our collaborative approach for reviews, most articles in this themed issue will assemble joint contributions of leading groups and will explore both experimental and theoretical aspects in a combined approach. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
